Facebook has finally restored the ability to view your news feed in simple chronological order, with the newest posts first. However, this option is slowly rolling out and isn't available to everyone yet.
Recently, Facebook introduced the idea of "Top Posts" and defaulted to showing users the posts they thought would most interest them at the top of the feed. Apparently the back-lash was strong enough that Facebook listened and restores users' ability to view their feed in the more reasonable order.
