Most of you guys will be asking What is NewGenBook ??? well here’s a quick teaser that shows the new Extension in action:



NewGenBook Changes the whole Interface of Facebook, It provides easy to access menus, minimalizes the newsfeed but packs a punch in features Dont like ads?... Ads Be Gone! That's right, NewGenBook Is Ad free, Enjoy browsing Facebook without any pesky ads! The look of NGB looks more new generation & user friendly.

NGB will be available for Google Chrome/ Rockmelt, Firefox, Opera and Safari!

NewGenBook Desktop 3.1.1 is out! head over to http://thinqtek.com/newgenbook/ Click "desktop" and Download the chrome version (Other browsers will be available soon)

If you get an error such as "Extensions, apps, and user scripts can only be added from the Chrome Web Store.” - Simply open the extensions page in chrome & drag the CRX file into chrome!

Not smart at all for your work, Facebook, and the people buying advertisements sake. Facebook and people that buy ads to get their business traffic depend on ads to make money. Not a smart feature especially since your product depends on the life of Facebook.

I would remove this feature or make a better way than Facebook to show ads.

Yeah, I tried it, and its quite good. Though I didn't really enjoyed it until I realized that I installed the beta from Chrome Web Store not the one from the website.

To each their own, this is an extension that is made to make facebook nicer, which includes the removal of ads.

Thank you!

Yeah the one in the chrome store is not upto date and our accounts team is working on getting the google page updated ASAP.

Nicely done, this is gold!


Why thank you!

Any plan for Android version?


You bet! right after the iPhone version! It will be one happy family; Desktop, iPhone & Android!

Safari users, simply head over to http://extensions.apple.com/ then go to Social Networking & Scroll until you see NewGenBook Then hit "Install Now" - It's a little buggy but we're on the apple extensions page! HUZZAH! Stay tuned for future updates!
