After reading Simple user styles I immediately downloaded Stylish (Chrome extension) and started messing around with Facebook. I always found UI filled with unnecessary stuff and I could finally remove certain parts (i.e. hide them).

Since I also like darker themes, quick result is something I call Darkbook :) Take a look:

I changed the default fonts, removed the right layout (who uses it anyway) and stretched the middle column a little bit to the right. I really like Google Web Fonts, you should check them out. I used Ubuntu for left column and Open Sans for everything else.

You can find the code on Github. Please note that this is merely an attempt at restyling, not a complete and usable style. I will continue to work on it (probably) and make it better over time.



Learn why developers are gravitating towards Node and its ability to retain and leverage the skills of JavaScript developers and the ability to deliver projects faster than other languages can.  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.
