How to Remove Facebook Timeline And Get Old Profile Back

Few weeks back Facebook started updating Timeline feature for all users. Some people don’t like this new Facebook Timeline Feature. There is no Option to Go back to Old Profile Layout. Many people queried  me regarding “How to Remove Facebook Timeline” so I came up with this post. Before that you should know its not the permanent solution and it only works in your browser, because I am going to do simple trick in your browsers. So others can view your timeline, but u can’t able to view Timeline.
So now a little bit of info about how actually these tricks work -
Facebook Time line is Not compatible with Older browsers like Internet Explorer  7, So if you are using Old browsers, you can’t view timeline in your profile. If you are using upgraded Versions, you have to change the Compatibility to Older browser. You have to undo the steps which you are going to do for this step to make the browser works like Latest version.
Here I will show you how to use these tricks in Chrome,Firefox,Safari & IE 7+browsers.
