Bridge: Bring back Compact Mode

Adobe removed Compact Mode in Bridge in favor of the Mini Bridge panel in inDesign. Then removed Mini Bridge support a few versions later, leaving a void where inDesign and Bridge overlap. In the current versions of inDesign and Bridge there is no easy way to use bridge and inDesign simultaneously. I can resize Bridge and change the workspace to replicate the Compact mode look, but it doesn't float on top so I have to constantly switch back and forth between programs, or resize windows so they can be side-by-side. This is not only inconvenient, it's nearly impossible on smaller laptop screens. This said it's extremely frustrating trying to place an image from a large library of files.
