One of the points she makes is about the bloated size of average web pages currently. I probably should look at that myself as well, as my hoster recently started sending me bandwidth warnings towards the end of the month. That is likely a sign that I should try to reduce the load of my site, go more minimalistic. Maybe not so minimalistic as Low-Tech Magazine, although that definitely has its own appeal.
Which leads me to the question: Is there an easy way to determine the total load size of a webpage (including dependencies / includes like stylesheet images and such)?
A quick google just surfaces suspicious SEO tools / claims.
