@Nyaa Limited memory is one reason, especially if you want large arrays of them.

Another reason is that working with floats is faster than working with doubles if the computer has no floating point hardware. (As recently as the 80386, many mainstream PCs hadn't. Some smaller computers still haven't.)

A more modern reason is that vector instructions (such as Intel's AVX) can work on twice as many floats at once as they can doubles.

@pixelfed I would prefer something like the Flickr's photostream page (see screenshot), where you can see the entire photo, not a square cropped version of it.
I would also like to have an option to show photos instead of posts.

We're redesigning profiles and want your feedback! Let us know what you think about this design and how we can improve it.

Boosts + feedback are greatly appreciated, the smallest gestures can have the biggest impact, and we are forever grateful for people like you! ❤️
