    I felt the need to tweak it so it wasn't a danger for my eyes.

    what. seems a little extreme.

    I felt the need to tweak it so it wasn't a danger for my eyes.

    And yet we set the background to pure white…

      Literally my first thought.

      If this was supposed to be easy on the eyes I'd imagine LOTS of dark tones. Not stark white.

    Why do people care so much about Facebook?

      Oh, I don't know. Maybe because it's the second biggest website in the world?

      It's a website that I visit many times a day because all of my mates are on there. If you don't care that much about it, that's ok too.

    The "cleaner" style also removes the ads. It's okay to criticize, but let's not act as if they don't have to deal with some of these constraints.

    Lovely redesign. I may be alone in thinking this, but I prefer the new design. It's very usable.

    Every time Facebook redesign something people react within 2 minutes of seeing it and decide it's bad - and then build an extension to "fix it". I think the latest version of the News Feed makes it a lot simpler to follow, the content is better delimited and the overall aesthetic has improved.

      This applies to almost all software or web applications, Facebook included. Hell, even physical things get redesigned and then berated. The hard fact is that most people hate change, it requires them to do some level or relearning what they already knew, even if it's ultimately more efficient.

    Do birthdays still appear on the righthand side with this extension?

    I tend to not bother using facebook on my desktop. I prefer the mobile experience.

    My FB doesn't look like that at all. It has a black left aligned sidebar.

    I'm curious, what specifically don't you like?

    I like the redesign, and I also like the new newsfeed. I do feel it is slightly "worse" for the user, since it feels like there's more focus on ads at the moment, but I completely get that it's important for the business to do so.

    Some things work a bit buggy over here though. The newsfeed doesn't always show content, but instead, shows the empty placeholders. Also, the right sidebar doesn't always load the ads but shows a bunch of horizontal lines.. But I guess that's not a bad thing in the end haha.

    I wouldn't call the new design "crappy" since you likely have little to no insight to the business or engagement goals behind some of the design decisions. Subjectivity vs objectivity!

    I'm probably the only person in the world who's still seeing the previous UI iteration on facebook so I have no idea which of these two is the redesign..

    The screenshot he is showing in his Gif is not the newest version of Facebook released in 2014.

      It is. You're seeing an old version they've tested before this one, look it up.
