I've been following the most recent last primary US election post and the Brexit post in my recent activity. However, trying to load these threads (even on my laptop - I don't even bother on my phone) in full is very difficult. Are there Chrome plugins out there that will allow me to truncate or modify these threads in some way to make the page load faster?

Would it be possible to move the most recent end of long, breaking story posts, like the NOLA one unfolding now into a separate thread, say the last 50 posts or so? Refreshing a long thread takes too long, and wastes bandwidth.
