Layoutify: Improved Layout for Instagram (delisted)

Description from extension meta

The layout of Instagram.com is not optimized for the desktop. This extension improves this.

Image from store Layoutify: Improved Layout for Instagram
Description from store The default Instagram.com layout is not optimized for the desktop. This extension improves the design. It also lets you view your saved ("Collections") and liked images on the web. To view them, click the 3-dots menu on the top right. Next, as Instagram is optimized for phones, they never load the highest quality and prevent the right click download of images. This extension changes that. My extension does not collect any private data and your images are only stored on your PC. Also, the code is Open-Source for you to check/contribute: https://github.com/kurtextrem/Layoutify-for-Instagram Privacy Policy: https://kurtextrem.de/chrome/PRIVACY.html (Sensitive data is only collected and stored on your own PC, options are synced if Chrome Sync is turned on) Permissions: "*.instagram.com/*"; means that it only has access to Instagram APIs and the Instagram web. *://*.fbcdn.net/*, *://*.cdninstagram.com/*: Needed to display images/videos on the 3-dots page. As written above, data is only collected on your own PC and the data stays there. Changelog --------- v3.12.1: Fixes broken feed. Instagram changed how they store posts. v3.12.0: Fixes the broken design - sorry for that, Instagram did update *everything* and it took a while to fix it. v3.11.3: Fixed stories in the sidebar v3.11.1: Fix broken feed in Brave (Please note: I'm not testing any other browser apart from Chrome) v3.11: Fix feed v3.10.1: Fix "navigation from main feed does not work" (since Instagram changed e.g. how stories loaded) v3.10.0: Download are now working again on /p/ and /tv/ links in new tabs v3.9.1: Fixes the "watch" function in Manifest V3 (looking back at the change, I was maybe too fast to switch. Sorry.) v3.9.0: The extension now less resources in the background by switching to Chrome Manifest V3 v3.7.0: "Watch" now notifies on new IGTV posts, new highlight reels, new tagged photos v3.6.1: Adds an option for the bigger modal; Arrows now appear sharper on Retina and 4k displays v3.6.0: DMs now have dark mode support; Modals with images/videos now appear larger (thanks Dominic for the suggestion) v3.4.0: Adds a new permission, as Instagram added a mechanism to prevent images/videos from loading on the 3-dots page v3.3.3.7: Tagged users now show up again. Also, this release fixes the "watch" functionality. Really sorry for that!! v3.3.3.6: Fixes the repeated likes on the 3-dot page (click the "Clear" button on "About" to fix it) !!! This version needs new permissions, as Instagram now prevents other pages from displaying images - which the 3-dots page does (fbcdn.net) !!! v3.3.3: Fixes clicking on stories in the feed and speeds the loading a bit up. v3.3.2: Added "System Night Mode" option. Turned on by default. When turned on, the night mode automatically activates when your Operating System is in Night/Dark Mode. v3.3.0: Now you can finally see all your collection & names on the web. v3.2.1: New logo (IG lawyers), fix stories sidebar. v2.10.0: You will now get a notification if a user changes his/her profile picture, when you watch his/her posts. v2.9.0: New Design for Stories! v2.8.3: Updated Night Mode. Much nicer colors. Fixed a few bugs regarding the 3-dots page. v2.8.0: You can now see Collection folders. However, it is in a beta test at the moment. So you see an ID instead of the collection name. v2.7.0: Exciting new feature: You can now watch users and get notified whenever they post something or add a story! v2.6.0: New Logo/Icon, thanks to Ibrahim Tenekeci! v2.5.4: You can download videos in stories now v2.5: The 3-dots menu now contains options v2.3.21: New feature: On single post pages, the highest quality is loaded. So you can right click to save the picture in the original quality. v2.3.14: Downloading videos is possible again v2.3.10: Support for native Stories on the web (Instagram implemented it and it's rolling out; No need for an 3rd party extension anymore :) ) v2.2.14: Bugfixes (Thank you to the Community for reporting bugs, especially Kelvin!) v2.0.0: Adds the ability to view likes and saved images on the web! Click the three dots on the top right to view them. In addition many bug fixes. v1.0.20: Fixes a community reported problem: When navigating from main page to a profile and then clicking a post resulted in a broken modal. v1.0.15: Slightly improves performance v1.0.14: Fixed layout when Chrome IG Story is missing v1.0.12: New Icon, name and bug fixes This project is in no way affiliated with, authorized, maintained, sponsored or endorsed by Instagram or any of its affiliates or subsidiaries.

  • (2022-09-20) Mercury Lampe: totally broken layout
  • (2022-09-10) Shyam Shah: amazing extension, , sometimes it does not work, but when it does its a charm . thank you
  • (2022-09-07) rcbbr: all i see is a white screen, had to download again so i can rate it 1 star
  • (2022-08-29) Shawn Herrin: Throws everything off to the right side and makes IG 100% unusable. Don't waste the install.
  • (2022-08-28) Lyon Chen: The layout is broken.
  • (2022-08-22) Tom Martin: Works OK for me except that if you left click to enlarge an image and then return to the feed, it puts you at the top rather than at the clicked image. This used to work fine so it's apparently due to an IG change.
  • (2022-08-21) Cristi M: Doesn't really work properly, makes a mess of your Instagram homepage. It seems that it needs updating.
  • (2022-08-11) H “Heist”: Doesn't work at all for me. Won't show the main feed leaving it blank and the sidebar doesn't work properly. What an absolute mess!
  • (2022-08-03) Scott Ever: It was great.......until recently, when it stopped displaying my liked pics (on the 3 dot button). This is while I'm using the Chrome extension in Opera Is it a bug? In Chrome, it seems to have broken in a different way. The main page seems almost superimposed in front of the rest of the page and I can't access the likes button (or any other button)
  • (2022-07-06) Katie Willems: - the sidebar is really janky. - for some reason it shows a selection of posts at the top of the page without being able to see any multiple images in those posts, and then repeats those posts under a line of stories, now being able to see the multiple images. - you can't scroll on the stories on the main page to see the ones hidden. also, clicking on stories on that section just results in a broken link page pop-up. It almost delivers, it just really needs ironing out. not usable in its state.
  • (2022-06-10) Knight of Eleum Loyce: Now it doesn't work. Single ig posts take up the entire webpage and i can't get to that button that lets me view my likes. What the hell happened?
  • (2022-06-02) A type: It was the best extension program before the recent Instagram update. It doesn't work anymore from today. The extension needs to be updated.
  • (2022-06-02) David Allen: used to be 5-star-amazing but now doesn't function, almost at all (1-star-bad), averaged to 3 :) desperately needs updating

  • (2022-03-14) Naga: I can now see posts each 3rows and post I've liked. And I can now save images with a right click.
  • (2022-03-14) JustforEu: this extension has so many issues and the devs aren't even fixing it, this is very irritating. not recommend download this extension
  • (2022-02-09) Mary Dorra: a BIG thing that's missing is being able to send your liked posts. that's what i'm really looking for
  • (2021-12-20) Rafaela Santos: I like the extension, the one thing that i would change is the way that you put the storys, instead of being in a row, be in a column. then it will be perfect. please consider that

  • (2021-10-04) babab bab: Stop CRASHING my browser dude!
  • (2021-10-02) Anoir Ben Tanfous: This extension will cause your account to be deactivated unfortunately since it is doing something in the background apparently that infringe Instagram policy...
  • (2021-09-29) Martin VanBuren: I want to give the extension five stars, but it's not there yet. Scrolling is buggy. I see the same posts repeatedly which, unfortunately, makes it unusable. It's a very promising extension and hope its development continues.
  • (2021-09-29) iiFiRe: this extension got my account deleted. got flagged twice(verify by sms) before the ban for most likely looking like a bot (loading too much stuff) and then Instagram reviewed my account and deleted it. I used this extension for a long time then Instagram updated their bot detection and they hate this extension now. after I got flagged the first time I disabled the extension for a while. made the mistake to re-enable it thinking something has changed and after a short time got flagged again. DO NOT USE THIS EXTENSION IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR ACCOUNT
  • (2021-09-22) John Winslow: Apologies. I recently wrote a review accusing this app of hijackings your account and liking random Instagram posts. It turns out it was Nano Defender. This extension is great. Many thanks to the developers who keep it up and running.

  • (2021-09-21) John Winslow: THIS EXTENSION HIJACKS YOUR INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT AND LIKES RANDOM POSTS. I was wondering why my account kept getting disabled after installing this extension. Then I looked at my like history...hundreds of likes to random Instagram posts a day! No wonder my recommendations are so screwed up. No other device has my account logged in, so it's doing all the work through this extension (change your password either way though). Report this extension and uninstall it immediately.
  • (2021-08-31) Steffan Cushion: Amazing amazing addon, however this quite literally got my account disabled, I assume it was sending too many requests to the IG servers or something idk :/
  • (2021-08-23) Faysal Ahmed: That is so useful thanks
  • (2021-07-26) Viktor F: "Try again later, we restrict certain activity to protect our community. Based on your use, this action will be unavailable for you until 2021-07-27. Tell us if you think we made a mistake." Getting this literally 5 minutes after using this extension. Ive gotten this like 10 times already within the span of a month. I dont even have to like or follow people, i can just open instagram and watch a couple of stories and i get blocked for a day. This extension is unusable
  • (2021-07-23) Sam LOL: I do like the options this gives but for some reason I keep getting disabled by instagram, which locks me out of my account for a day. I don't know why and I feel like it's this extension doing it
  • (2021-07-12) João Carlos: Cumpre o que promete. Mas senti falta de uma opção de desabilitar fácil ou voltar para o modo tradicional.

  • (2022-06-27, v:3.12.0) Connor Cottrell: Suddenly stopped working
    Hi, I've been using your extension to download all of my instagram likes onto my computer to compile them. However, for some reason, this extension just stopped working. Whenever I try to click the three dots and go to the page with all my likes, it just shows an empty page with a greyed out "show more" button that I can't click on. I've tried uninstalling, and reinstalling this extension, as well as logging out of my instagram account, but so far nothing has worked. Less than half an hour ago this was working perfectly, and now for some reason I can't access anything. Any suggestions?

  • (2021-10-10, v:3.9.0) RNA Grump: Loading
    Hi, I really enjoy the convenience of this extension and how I can use all functions that I can do on my phone on my laptop instead. However, every time I click the "load more" button that's on the bottom a few times, or even once if I wait a bit, the loading button turns light grey and I can't click to load more posts. Meaning I have to keep reloading the site so I can use it again and it keeps happening. I don't want to have to keep starting over at the top with the recent liked posts. I almost want to delete this extension because of it. Please help with this, thanks.
  • (2021-09-30, v:3.9.0) Mike Theobald: Blown up pictues don't look good :-(
    Hi, I love this extension, but PLEASE don't show pictures larger than their original size - that looks just atrocious. Thanks and keep up the good work!
  • (2021-09-29, v:3.9.0) Sami Dashti: Liked Posts

  • (2021-08-06, v: OzzyOscy: Getting challenged
    Maybe it's IG just being unfriendly again, but I'm getting the same problem we were having a few months ago - suddenly getting taken to a 'challenge' page and being told to give a phone number to receive a text, even though all I did was view stories and profiles.
  • (2021-07-01, v:3.7.0) Dora Fourdora: blocked
    I was blocked on both my account by instagram after your update. Sorry I have to remove the extension. that's really annoying to be locked out of instargram.
  • (2021-06-14, v: Manuel Mérida: Account locked
    I've had my account locked several times over the course of the last weeks, as in, Instagram would request me to go on mobile and take a selfie verification video. Today, my account was locked more tightly. I had to carry out a captcha and an SMS verification and it seems they will contact me within 24 hours. Layoutify is the only Instagram-related add-on I have installed.
  • (2021-06-08, v: Jin: Random like/unlike actions while scrolling over multiple photos from the same post
    Thanks a lot making this extension. It is really useful (although recently the lockouts from Instagram does bug me a lot). But just to report another issue, when I scroll over multiple photos (>=2) using the right arrow, the like/unlike actions are randomly triggered. For example, the like action is often triggered when I scroll over from the 2nd photo to the 3rd photo in a post using the right arrow. But if I continue to scroll over another couple photos, the unlike action will be triggered. This random triggering may repeat multiple times if I cycle through the photos long enough. Hopefully this can be addressed in a future update as well. Thanks!
  • (2021-06-04, v:3.5.0) Tim: Suspicious activity
    Just got locked out again, 3rd time in a week. This lockout just occurred today, after the new update concerning the lockouts.
  • (2021-05-30, v: Michael Gonzalez: Download speeds
    My download speeds are super fast, and on Google Chrome I usually download most things within seconds. But whenever I download a video on Chrome through layoutify it takes around 60 seconds to download a 2.8 MB video.
  • (2021-05-27, v: Tyler Moore: Causing instagram to detect suspicious activity.
    This appears to cause instagram to detect suspicious activity and also on multiple instagram accounts that I have, I have liked things that I did not like.
  • (2021-05-25, v:3.4.0) OzzyOscy: 'suspicious activity', locking accounts, identity confirmation when watching stories
    I suspect this extension is the problem. Nearly every day for the past month I've been watching my followed's stories and then been hit with a page saying someone seems to have hacked into my account and I need to change my password / enter a code from a text / do a video selfie, sometimes locking the account for several days.
  • (2021-05-22, v: Nedi Carl: Instagram blocking accounts
    Since this extension keeps tracks of likes, instagram has been blocking my account and asking for human verification. This has to be gone
  • (2021-05-22, v: Kriek Cherry: Image don't show in post I like

  • (2021-05-18, v: Cameron MacVean: Not working, at all.
    For the last month or more, the extension simply doesn't work. Trying to view my likes or collection just gives me a bunch of broken images. I've cleared my cache, removed and reinstalled the extension, cleared cookies, nothing seems to help.
  • (2021-05-11, v: Cloud Wizard: Likes not displaying?
    So I love this extension but recently when I go to view my likes nothing will show? The posts are there and the page scrolls as it normally does but the videos and images are just the little missing image logo and loading swirls. I'm sad because I use reference videos from my likes a lot and this extension has been super helpful
  • (2021-04-23, v: Никита Ланцов: Please fix the application

  • (2021-02-24, v: Oh Death: Only last 21 of my recently liked posts showing

  • (2021-01-15, v: Kathleen Illustrated: How do I remove this as an add-on from my IG account?
    Hi there, how do I remove Layoutify from my account? I had to "link" it to my IG account to use it - so how do I unlink it? I need to do some testing using the original UI, but I'll re-link after I'm done. Thanks

  • (2020-12-03, v:3.3.3) OzzyOscy: Stories on the extension now no longer work
    If you click a story, it won't open. Try a direct link one and it'll just say there's a problem. The extension has to be disabled to allow viewing and default interaction options with a story (rather than the extras the extension gives).
