Why show all changes in a Pull Request on one giant page?

My organization uses both Bitbucket Server and Bitbucket ("cloud").  In BB Server, pull requests have a "Diff" tab where we can easily browse through the proposed changes, file by file, to make comments on them.  Sometimes the changes involve large CSV files, but that's fine, we might review those manually in a real working tree, and avoid clicking on them in the web UI.

By contrast, BB Cloud puts all the changes on one huge web page.  It's extremely difficult to maintain my bearings in this view.  Changes to large files essentially hog the entire page.  Navigation is accomplished by anchor-links, so I'm trying to awkwardly use forward/back button stuff all the time.  I end up super lost.

Is there some way to get the BB Server behavior in the cloud version?  Are there other people out there who dislike the cloud view?  Everyone I've talked to in my organization really dislikes it.
