Simple Hack to Disable "Facebook Timeline" Feature

If the newly introduced "Facebook Timeline" feature is not your cup-of-tea, there is no official way to get rid of it. However, thanks to the nifty hack shared ahead "Facebook" users can still revert-back to the old Facebook profile look.

The Evil Facebook Timeline

Luckily, for the "timeline" haters - facebook does not support Internet explorer 7 and therefore displays the older layout to users with this web-browser. To get the hack working all a user needs to do is to fake his web-browser "User-agent" string to this non-supported browser, however using this hack introduces a new problem and page formatting errors with a big white gap appears on the page heading - once again to our luck a nifty browser addon "F.B Purity" for Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Safari takes care of this with many added features, so all you need to do is to install this addon and fake your "User-agent".
