For the iPod or Android platforms, touch.facebook.com works very well and skips the bloat.

Firefox + AdBlock Plus is all you need to get rid of those ridiculous, pesky ads on Facebook.  Or, you can try the Microsoft Silverlight Client for Facebook.  It has a Zune-like interface with all of your FB content...kinda neat in its beta form.

Use greasemonkey(add-on) and facebook purity (script for greasemonkey) on Firefox

I used Lite from work as Facebook itself (as well as all social networking sites) are blocked. I guess I will have to resort to the crappy plugin in Yahoo again.

I used the lite version exclusively. It was not perfect, but it did away with the bloat of the normal site. Sadly, Facebook has become the new MySpace. I will probably use the iPhone version only from now on.

I had no idea. I bet it would be good to use on phones.

I'll go out on a limb and say that pulling the plug on it because of limited use is probably a nice way of saying that you should expect advertisments soon to make FaceBook very profitable. Lite is not good for proposed green.
