Why is Flickr so very very beyond slow and maybe broken, sometimes (OS X)?

I'm rockin' OS X (Tiger) and all my browsers (Safari, Firefox, Camino) load Flickr slower than slow. Half the time it doesn't load fully at all: when searching, half or more of the photos won't display and the browser will sit there indefinitely, loading the page. Same thing happens on individual photo pages. It seems to happen less frequently if I'm only loading one Flickr page at a time (as opposed to lots of tabs, which is what I'm trying to do), but it still happens.
Is this just Flickr being Flickr? Is there some setting I can set or browser I can use that can fix this?
