One of the last bastions of the old-school Web just got ruined, from the point of view of speedy search. Flickr’s bloated and slow “crammed lightbox” style of page display is now mandatory, and there’s no way to change back. It’s also on the Creative Commons search results. It’s going to make a Flickr search twice or three times as long to do, at least until we get Stylish / GreaseMonkey scripts to force it back to a fast and more user-friendly style. There are no such scripts out there yet, I looked.
