F.B. Purity lets you clean up and Customize Facebook. It gives you options for filering out all the application spam and other annoying message types, and generally makes Facebook less annoying to use
F.B. Purity adds a small information bar at the top of your facebook homepage / news feed. It tells you how many application messages its hidden and also how many other "extra" message types (which you can specify in the options screen) its hidden. The options screen is accessible by clicking the F.B. Purity link in the previously mentioned information bar.
