Facebook’s big desktop overhaul is taking over its predecessor, compete with a minimalist look and dark mode, but there are problems…
It was about five months ago that Facebook first revealed at its F8 event it would bring a dark theme option to its revamped desktop site. Then, in May, Facebook desktop dark mode began its slow roll out — very slow. Now, the big makeover is taking the place of the old interface. Everyone should have it by the end of the month. When switched over, some issues come with the transformation.
New Facebook Website Redesign Rolling Out to All
The new facebook.com is is a minimalist approach, with significantly less clutter. For the time being, it’s still possible to revert back to the classic look. But, this option will tentatively go away by the end of the month. There is another distinct issue. The new code behind the redesign is breaking several third-party browser extensions. When people attempt to use those plugins, they either fail to run or don’t work correctly.
Currently, there are some workarounds for this problem. People have found ways to make now non-compatible third-party browser extensions work. Presumably, Facebook itself is working on a fix, but this isn’t confirmed. Regardless, the classic UI won’t be available much longer.
