Remove mode switcher from the network admin users screen

The excerpt mode / list mode switcher on the Users screen in network admin is pretty useless. The only attribute on the screen that changes is the addition of the timestamp to the Registered column.

The mode switcher (which still uses the old UI for mode switching) should be removed and the timestamp shown all the time.

Is there a reason there is not a Registered column defined in?

So on single sites when a user was registered that would show as an admin column?

Rather than removing the mode switcher, I'd suggest making use of the feature in a better way. I think there's a benefit of showing less information in some cases, for example when you want to have an easier overview. For this specific example it doesn't matter, but as soon as plugins start adding more data, the mode switcher may become significant.

For this screen, I don't heavily lean against removing the switcher, but I think it should not be entirely removed. Let's rather just hide it with an easy way of bringing it back for developers.
