The normal Facebook homepage is a hefty download that is not immediately responsive. If you want quick access to your friend’s updates and such, you should give Facebook Lite a try. There’s even an option that allows you to switch back and forth between the Lite and full versions.
Facebook Lite is a thinned down, fast loading version of the default Facebook.
1. Go to http://lite.facebook.com/ and login to your account.
2. Go to the blue bar at the top of the page and select the Settings icon.
3. Select Default Site.
4. If you want Facebook Lite to be your default, select the Facebook Lite radio button and click the Save button. If you want to be able to freely switch back and forth between the lite and full versions, check the Let me switch between Regular Facebook and Facebook Lite checkbox. Click the Save button.
If you checked the checkbox, there will be a thin blue strip above the regular page with a link to switch to the alternate version in the right corner.
