I'll take a look once there is a demo version.

I'm on a laptop. On my home WiFi, it takes 5-15 seconds. This old-style results page takes less than 200ms, uncached:

There are a number of approaches to make this smaller if needed. Some options would be to generate a separate JSON file, or to make the data format in the existing json file more compact.

It seems to me that only data on unexpected failures should be needed for initial display. Making the page load fast seems more important than convenience of reusing an existing JSON file. I hope you will agree that 5-15 second load time is not acceptable. I'm sure it would be even worse in poor network conditions, where even the old-style pages can be a challenge to load. I would also like to be able to look at results pages on my iPhone or iPad without invoking the OOM killer.

What would the bots display if this is deployed?
