I recently switched from threaded mode to flat mode. Quickly reading through multiple posts is now much much easier.

For example, I recently read through a dozen posts on a topic I hadn't looked at before. In threaded mode I would have had to open and close each post. In flat mode they are all there at once so I can just skim down the page. Wonderful!

I seem to be slower at discovering computer things than most people around me.
