Why? The webstie said
- you often use operating systems where Flash doesn't work, or doesn't work well.
- speeding up pageviews noticeably is important to you.
- you're a web developer and you are interested in this bleeding-edge Ajax stuff.
- using Flickr beta isn't extreme enough for you. You want to run some amateur code, triggered by a brand new framework, in an alternative browser, that tries to modify an often-changing beta interface.
In fact Lickr is the combination of three important concepts:
Flickr - a community for the photo addicts
Greasemonkey - a framework for intercepting the DOM of a website and modify accordingly
Ajax - an intermediate between the webserver and the user.
