Description

This is hrev51614.

Besides being rather large, I don't think the progress bar when loading a screenshot is really needed. 99% of the time, the loading is so fast that you're more distracted by the short blib of the progress bar than it's informative.

I can imagine it's a drag to implement..., but ideally a status text like "Loading screenshot..." or eventually "Failed to load screenshot" would only appear if the loading isn't finished after 0.2(?) seconds. A failure status should stay visible, the "Loading screenshot" simply disappear after a second.

You say that with your fancy connection at home... ;-) With the high-latency connection we had at the coding sprint, it usually took 5-10 seconds for each screenshot to load. But hiding it until a few hundred milliseconds have passed is a good idea.

We now use a barber-pole progress bar for screenshots, which is much less invasive than the actual progress bar. Having it displayed for only a few seconds seems not so annoying, to me anyway.
