  1. Install Requestly Browser Extension (Requestly is available in Chrome and Firefox)
  2. Click on Add Rule (+) Icon
  3. Select Replace Rule
    • Enter Name and Description
    • Replace www.reddit.com with old.reddit.com
  4. Click on Save and you are done!

Just so you know, you can turn off the redesign in your reddit preferences. No need to go to all this work. And reddit isn’t going to be depreciating the current design at any point.
