Have it your way with Better Facebook

Better FacebookThere's pretty good chance that you are one of the millions of people who have a Facebook account. While the social network has an undeniably huge user base, there are few who would claim that there is not room for improvement. If you've ever wished for a way to customize the appearance of your Facebook account, or would like more control over the way the site works, assuming you're using  FirefoxSafariOperaChrome or Greasemonkey, Better Facebook may be just what you have been looking for -- Internet Explorer users are left out in the cold, however.

Better Facebook is a browser extension that can be used to completely change the way Facebook looks and works. In all, there are more than 70 settings that can be applied in various combinations to personalize the social network to your liking. Anyone who has a fairly extensive list of friends will be all too aware that it does not take long for your Facebook news feed to run out of control. Better Facebook adds options such as tabbed news feeds and news filtering so you can concentrate on what is most important or interesting.

Few people remember the non-music days of MySpace with much fondness, but one thing the site did have in its favor was the fact that it was possible to customise its appearance with HTML, CSS and scripts. Better Facebook enables you to personalize your profile through the use of skins and provides useful options such as the ability to customise links that appear to the left of the page to provide easy access to your most frequently used apps and pages.

The extension also adds a character count to the status update field so you will be able to tell when you are running out of space. Other useful features include notification of friend activity being displayed in one place and the much requested option to be alerted if you are unfriended by someone. Better Facebook is an impressive extension that includes many features and options that arguably should be part of the site as standard.
