Enhance Your Facebook Experience In Google Chrome

By now you might have already known that is my favorite browser and I use it day in an day out on my Dell XPS as well as on the dedicated CR-48 netbook Google sent me.


I am also a very keen social networking user and use both and extensively. However, there are few things which could be done better with both of these services. Alas, it depends on Facebook or Twitter developers to make those changes, and many things I want in them wouldn’t be considered.

However, there are several out there which can easily enhance your experience with Facebook. In this post, I will try and list out the extensions I use on Facebook to enhance my experience with it. If you are looking for a desktop tool, don’t forget to check out the most Awesome desktop app for Facebook.

Beautify Facebook

Facebook Profile Beautifier

Tired of being forced on how you can view your profile without having the options to change colors or move widgets around? The Beautify Facebook extension will come in handy then.

The Beautify Facebook extension allows you to change the background for Facebook, apply transparency to content and more. It also allows you to tweak Facebook by allowing you to hide requests, Advertisements and more.

It also provides you with handy shortcuts for accessing frequently used pages. For example, you can use the Shift + h shortcut key to quickly go to the Facebook homepage from any other page, or Shift + p to go to your profile or Shift + i to to your inbox and so on. Overall, this extension is definitely worth trying out.

You will find the Options to edit the settings for Beautify Facebook extension when you visit Facebook.com.

Download Beautify Facebook CR Edit. If you want to try out other options check out Facebook Stylist and Facebook Themed extensions.

    Cortex i’d say is the best extension for sharing on facebook/twitter
    (takes less than a second)

    other than that Photo Zoom is awesome

    Beautify kinda lags though

      @smokes – I agree that Cortex is pretty good, but I stopped using it because sometimes click and hold can share unwanted things, they should have an option to control it and I would use it again :-)

        yeah i also agree, probably they’ll release an update
        but i’m actually ok with this.. i already ‘learned’ how the app works ( if you select text it doesn’t appear.. but if you try to click where there is no text on a page, it appears..
        still this extension saves a LOT of time on sharing :)
