Without a shadow of a doubt, almost every single one of us uses Facebook. The world’s largest social network dominates the “computer usage time” of a majority of users out there. It won’t be an exaggeration to say that Facebook has completely transformed the way people use computers (and Internet) to communicate with each other. However, even though most of the Facebook users couldn’t care less about its web UI, it’s hard to deny that it has stayed largely unchanged. And it’s even gotten a little boring with time.
Not a problem, as Facebook Flat might just be able to help with that. Simply speaking, it’s a nifty little Google Chrome extension that instantly lets you make Facebook flat, minimal, and faster. Moreover, all of the regular website sections, such as newsfeed, messages, account settings etc. stay completely accessible, only get better looking. Let’s find out more.
How To Make Facebook Flat, Minimal, And Faster?
Step 1: Getting started with Facebook Flat is a ridiculously straightforward affair. First off, you have to search for the extension on the Chrome Web Store (or click here), as is the case with any Chrome extension. Once found, hit the Add to Chrome button to install it.
Step 2: As far as the initial configuration is concerned, we’re all set. Now, simply navigate to Facebook’s homepage, and enter your account credentials to sign in, as you always do. The moment you do that, you should see Facebook’s entire web UI transformed into a flatter version of itself. It’s not only better looking and more condensed, but also makes all the primary options (e.g. pages, notifications) easier to access. The header bar lists the general shortcuts (account settings, profile etc.), as well as the search bar. And since Facebook Flat is fully responsive, you can easily resize the browser as per your convenience. Here’s a screenshot, illustrating Facebook Flat in action:
