Description

FB Refresh is a browser extension for Google Chrome which I created in 2011. The goal of this project is to make the login page of Facebook a little nicer to look at. Its primary feature is the ability to set any image as a “wallpaper” for the login page.

What I Did

I created the Chrome extension out of boredom. It was a fun way to experiment using Chrome’s content script injection. It is comprised of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. The JavaScript is very rough around the edges because this was one of my first times coding in it. At its peak, the extension had ~450,000 users with it installed. That number has slowly decreased to ~170,000 due to my lack of maintaining it and working out the bugs which have arose over the last two years. Its on my list of things to do, but it isn’t a high priority right now.
