How do you create a compact view in JIRA?

We just upgraded to JIRA 7.2 from 5.x.  I am just a general user of JIRA and my biggest surprise was what seems like the inefficient use of screen space relative to what we saw in 5.x.  It seems to me like there is an increase of white space and possibly increase of font size changes.  Are we missing something obvious on how you might create a compact view?  Finding this especially obvious in dashboards we have created.

I do not think that the efficiency of the issue screen decreased. Just compared the image from here https://www.atlassian.com/social-software-development-with-jira with my JIRA and 7.2 looks more "informative" for me.
