NEW!! Users of this script may also be interested in my new script, Facebook Colour Changer.

This script is very similar to my script inYOfac3Book, but with a few minor changes;

  • pages will load much faster; larger images only load when the mouse is over small ones,
  • larger images remain visible if the mouse is over them until the mouse goes off them,
  • larger images will display image titles if the mouse hovers over them (this can only occur when the large image overlaps the smaller one when it is displayed),
  • funky image background behind the larger images whilst they are loading.
The main advantage of this over inYOfac3Book is the first point; images are only loaded on demand, giving the page a quicker load time, but large images will have a slower load time if you wish to view them.

NB. you need to be using the Firefox web browser with the Greasemonkey extension installed to use this script.
