FB Photo Zoom for Chrome 1.1206.5.1

A Google Chrome addon that allows users to magnify the Facebook images by simply hovering the mouse over them, without needing to click them
Most people use Facebook to show off their pictures and to browse the ones of their contacts’, so it comes as little surprise that there are many third-party applications meant to leverage users’ experience on Facebook. Such a utility is FB Photo Zoom for Chrome.

In order to install this browser extension, you will need to open the Extensions tab (simply open the main menu, then access the Tools section) then drag and drop the downloaded file onto the main window of Google Chrome.

Next, you will need to login to Facebook by entering your registered email and password, or create a new account if you do not have one. You will notice a new icon next to the Chat one and it can help you easily disable or enable the extension.

Once you make sure FB Photo Zoom for Chrome is activated, you can start browsing the images within a Facebook album and you will notice that hovering the mouse pointer over an image will instantly display a popup showing the full-sized image.

It needs to be mentioned that the enlarged image cannot be expanded beyond the limits of Chrome’s window, so you might want to maximize the window if you want to explore the pictures at their real dimensions.

Uninstalling it is just as easy: simply access the same Extensions tab that you opened when you installed FB Photo Zoom for Chrome and remove it from the browser.

All in all, this Chrome addon can help you enjoy Facebook more than before, as you can preview the images at their full size without needing to click on them.

Nonetheless, if you do not use Chrome on a regular basis, you will need to look for other extensions that are compatible with your default browser.
