- Limited filtering options
- Time consuming to browse
Being able to select multiple filtering options at once would be very nice. However, after you check one of the filtering radio boxes, the page reloads with the new results. To select multiple options, one must wait for the page to load and then scroll to the appropriate filter in the left sidebar. Removing filters is easy, but also has the same issue of the page reloading. To remove filters, click the "x" inside the box at the top of the search results for the filters which you want to eliminate. Filtering is not friendly on the mobile app.
Too many results load without filters. When trying to scroll to the bottom of the page, results continue to load with some delay. Having separate pages or having the option to display a set number of results per page would make this site more user friendly.
