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.
The web’s success is built on it being robust.
That robustness has made it work for everybody
As a result, people all over that planet now depend on the web, for their livelihoods, for social interaction, for their health.
It means we have to defend the web for everybody. It’s our job to keep it accessible and usable for all.
