This style is still available for install, but does have issues. I know there are issues! I haven't had the time, resources or energy to update it. If you still like it, continue to use it -- just be aware that FaceBlack is quite honestly a better alternative. It may not be as minimalistic, but at least there aren't odd transparent regions. I may, at some point, update. I may not. I apologise for any inconvenience. If you want me to update with fixes for issues, donate and I'll try scrape up the courage again (:

This style is a light derivative of "Blacked Out (Rounded Corners)" (http://freestyler.ws/style/52718/blacked-out-rounded-corners-no-ads).

More info
* replace obnoxious white animated loading div with something less obnoxious (but not perfect: when
I have shitty internet again, I'll try to make it better; testing atm is a bit of a mission, once
the site has loaded; still, this is less glaring than the white animated crap that is the default)

* hide game advert spam.
* finally fix positioning of the timeline date-jump list
* fix sticky header which appears when you scroll down the timeline to have a background

* hide the facebook "about", etc links (they're cluttering up the place)
* some tweaks to the reminders at the top right

* fix for transparent overlays ("who likes this?" etc)

* fix for the New Improved Blue at the top ):
* fix for artifact from floating right column

* fix for misaligned text by video item previews (finally)
* fix for white hover color in chat / right-side event list
* fix for blue chat box heading

* fix for FB chat illegibility. Sorry about the delay: I basically never use
FB chat. But if anyone was bothered, no-one tried to tell me about it...

* fix for initially undersized comment textareas

* fix for jumping right column wrapper and bad alignment of same.
* fix chat expander for usability

* fix confusing buttons on "post to timeline"
- all should have text now
- all should be of the same height now
* fix for wide "unlike" button / link

* minor fixes for notifications area (stray icon and silly overlay "F" icon)

* less rounding on corners
* add subtle bordering on overlay flyout menus
* fix blue post button
* fix white story options button
* nicer lightbox overlays
* update for crappy-looking overlay dialogs
* updates for light-on-white message text
- note: there is a small white rectangle I'm still trying to get rid of in the messages pane, next to every message. But at least this current version is more usable than the prior one. Sorry for delays on fb chat stuff -- I don't really use fb chat.
* minor fix for white background in messages' contact list when it's empty
- looks like it's based on generated code; this fix is likely to require maintenance.

* update to deal with friends buttons white-on-white
* remove all -moz css rules (deprecated)

* update to deal with share buttons looking like crap.
