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