How to disable Facebook Photo Theater mode

Last night, a friend of mine asked me for a way to get rid of the not so well received Facebook Photo Theater mode. While I helped him, I thought why don’t share the Facebook Photo Theater pain killer with you guys as well. Get the solution after the break.

If you do your browsing using Chrome, then all you need to do is install the Revert Facebook Photo Viewer extension for Chrome and you are good to go. The extension doesn’t require any interaction from you whatsoever and does its work silently and efficiently.

Facebook Photo Theater View went live in February 2011 and as many of you know lets you view photos in Theater mode which is basically a picture with an annoying black background.
