iFacebook userstyle

+ 23 comments
iFacebook brings to Facebook desktop version some default styles from the Facebook's mobile site and iPhone App. It is not intrusive, so you'll notice slightly changes that will make Facebook smoother and cleaner, well this of course will depend on each user's view point, so I invite you to try it and see if you like it.


+ Install on userstyle.org


Anyways, I really think Facebook's mobile site and iPhone App has a great ui design, so I've cooked this experimental userstyle to include same look for some ui elements present on those distinct Facebook's mobile alternatives. Keep reading to see more full screenshots and details.

Major changes were applied on the Top Bar which is kind of flat style on Facebook's desktop version, you'll notice new ui for the fly-out pop ups used in Notifications, Friend Requests and Messages, new search field and user's account navigation menu...

TopBar 



Flyout pop ups



User's account menu





Cleaner wided Feeds Page
More room to play with, now with 760px wide - removed reminders sidebar as almost same info can be found in notifications




No Ads

I've opted to remove Facebook Ads Completely, although I consider Facebook advertisement sidebar quite handy as it allows us discover new things all the time, but if you prefer you can enable ads again (keep reading below to learn how to edit the code yourself very quickly in order to enable or disable it anytime).


Enabling and Disabling Ads
Assuming you already know how to install/ uninstall and edit the code of the userstyles you use with the help of Stylish (add-on/extension) for Firefox, Chrome, Safari etc or any other one of your choice, and after installing iFacebook userstyle, go to Stylish options/preferences and selct ifacebook to edit its code.

Find this piece of code bellow and delete it all. This will enable Facebook ads. To have ads removed again, just paste this piece of code back into iFacebook userstyle's code.
/*--- Facebook SideBar Ads ---*/
#pagelet_side_ads {display: none !important;}
.fbTimelineSideAds {display: none !important;}
.ego_column {display: none !important;}
/* -- End Facebook SideBar Ads -- */

    1. Hi, sorry but your question is a bit vague as you could set a background image for almost any page element by using css...

      Example:

      .example-class {
      background: url ('http://your-site.com/your-image.jpg') 0 25px no-repeat;
      }

    1. Hi, thanks for your feedback. In fact iFacebook userstyle is outdated although I've created it not so long ago. I'll have to check all Facebook changes and improve it. In the meantime you may want to disable it but keep it installed as you can get automatic updates from userstyles.org.

    1. Salut. Pour activer à nouveau les annonces, vous devez allez dans les options / préférences de Stylish et sélectionnez iFacebook à modifier son code.

      Trouvez ce morceau de code:

      /*--- Facebook SideBar Ads ---*/
      #pagelet_side_ads {display: none !important;}
      .fbTimelineSideAds {display: none !important;}
      .ego_column {display: none !important;}
      /* -- End Facebook SideBar Ads -- */

      Et supprimer tout. prêt.
