Okay, after loading this page for the umpteenth time in order to respond to comments, I find it very tedious to wait for all the images on the page to load before I can read and reply to a comment.

I propose a new system for dealing with lots of stills. Perhaps something based on the XMLHttpRequest API where all those bandwidth hogging images only get loaded if user interaction indicates that they are wanted.

It's just very irritating as the page jerks repeatedly as image after image loads. I have to wait for this to complete before I can read comments and respond.

The Secret Masters of Kinja, please take note of my plea!
