[update]Alright, it looks like Facebook removed this feature… why, Facebook?[/update]
For all of you that despise the new Facebook layout, there is an alternative: Facebook Lite.
From what I can tell, here's everything that's been changed:
- Sidebar Navigation: has been removed.
- Search and Top Navigation: has been changed to reflect older Facebook revisions; if my memory serves me correctly, this is very close to how Facebook originally
- News Feed: very twitter-like, only shows status updates and a few applications (photos, events, and notes from what I can tell).
Check it out here: Facebook Lite. If you'd like, you can even make it your default Facebook experience.
