Faster Page Turning

A big update went live recently that revamps the process of navigating between pages. It builds on the changes from a month-and-a-half ago that did a better job of reducing page load time from the server, but this one reduces the amount of time spent on the client side. This can be particularly impactful on slower devices like phones where a page turn can now take a quarter of what it used to.

As part of this change, the animation shows new pages sliding in from the right and previous pages sliding in from the left. We've tested on multiple devices, browsers, and OS's, but as always, if you run into a problem please let us know.

While those are the most obvious changes overall, there where also many bug fixes that should improve the overall experience.
