We will be stuck with slideshows for the simple reason they can puke out more ads onto your browser. Instead of one page full of ads, you get <number of slides> full of adds.

Kinja sites have a List button you can click to see the items in their slideshows. You only have to look at one item to see the list.

I windowed the browser and narrowed it down enough to scroll through the entire text without clicking through the slide show. Alas, I was unable to view the images.

Nope. But I do dare you turn off a ad blocker and reload one of these slides.
