Photo Zoom for Facebook Review
First off, everything is going back to normal with a new build being released.
Someone hacked the most popular extension on the Chrome store and was able to update it with malware that redirected users to bad advertisement websites in a ploy to make a quick bucks.
It is infuriating that someone was able to do this, but we have removed the malware and are back on track.
As always, Photo Zoom does not want to run on any sites other than ours and Facebook (obviously) and certainly do not want your data at all.
We are so sorry for the inconvenience!
Join nearly 5 million people using Photo Zoom for Facebook, the Highest Rated Most Popular Extension for Google Chrome!

Photo Zoom for Facebook, formerly FB Photo Zoom, is a simple, light-weight extension that integrates directly into Facebook so you can see the larger images of albums, profile images and more whenever you hover over an image!
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Why does it say you access my Facebook and browsing data?
A: You can rest assured that Photo Zoom for Facebook does not access, view, use, manipulate, or even care about any of your data, history or private information, at all. PZ4FB requires certain permissions to run correctly and Google is simply telling you that PZ4FB could access your data, not that it does. It's absolutely up to you to only install extensions and apps that you trust. You can read more here: http://www.regisgaughan.com/fbphotozoom/privacy
Q: Wasn't this called "Facebook Photo Zoom" and "FB Photo Zoom?"
A: Sure was. Unfortunately over a year ago Facebook filed a DMCA complaint that temporarily took down this and many other popular Facebook extensions. We've had to modify the name so the trademark "Facebook" does not appear as an endorsement. We urge everyone to be careful with other extensions that call themselves "Faceobok Photo Zoom" or "FB Photo Zoom." These are not the original and potentially malicious.
Q: What makes Photo Zoom for Facebook so awesome?
A: Easy: No bloat. PZ4FB does one thing and one thing better than the rest: Enhance your Facebook image viewing experience. We believe this is why we are the highest rated extension in the Google Chrome Web Store. We'll gladly leave rounded corners and dislike buttons to other extensions.
Q: Why is PZ4FB better than other "knock-offs?"
A: Photo Zoom for Facebook is built specifically for Facebook and your browser. It uses a small set of browser-specific features to keep it powerful and lightweight that can't be found in similar extensions that rely on bloated libraries and features.
Q: How do I disable PZ4FB?
A: You can toggle Photo Zoom on and off by clicking the icon in the lower-right near your chat bar or by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+Z
Q: What are the advanced features?
A: There are a bunch of ways to customize PZ4FB. Want to wait a second when over a photo before Photo Zoom kicks in? You can. Only want Photo Zoom to fucntion when your holding SHIFT? We got that too. There's a feast of options in the "Advanced Settings" of PZ4FB's options. Take a look, but we do feel that you'll like PZ4FB as it is.
Q: Does your extension access my data on Facebook?
A: Nope. While PZ4FB does run on Facebook.com, all it cares about is making the images you hover over easier to see. You can rest assured that PZ4FB does not access, view, collect, use, or even manipulate any of your data, history or private information, at all.
Q: Why do you need my history?
A: PZ4FB does not access your history. However, it does rely on communicating and manipulating tabs in your browser and, unfortunately, this triggers the same warning in Google Chrome. You can see more on Google's docs here (the third row, "tabs" and "history"): http://j.mp/fEia5o
Q: How do I contact you?
A: I'm a pretty busy guy and can't promise I'll respond to every email, but I can promise that I will read every one. You may contact me via http://j.mp/9S5NzF
