Classic Facebook or the old Facebook layout is going away and lots of people aren’t happy with the new layout because it’s slow.

Facebook isn’t making the transition to the new layout a happy one and removed the option for most of us to use the old, snappy layout.

Another minor caveat: this is only possible because it’s still available on facebook, once they remove it entirely, we are locked in on the new layout until a new solution arises.
