Description of problem
It appears that the iNaturalist website is being deployed with a development build of React instead of the production build. I only found this as I have the React Developer Tools extension in chrome installed and noticed the extension showing a red icon while on iNaturalist.
Deploying with the production build would provide some performance improvements (I’m not sure how much) and should be reasonably straightforward.
This page provides some guidance on what to change in the website production build/deploy scripts: https://reactjs.org/docs/optimizing-performance.html#use-the-production-build
