Thanks for all the work you've put into this, Ojan! Is there a link we can use to look at the latest and greatest?

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.

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.
