Found this article on HN comment thread. Really nice read!
It clearly shows problems in 2015 and made accurate predictions that in 2020 things would be even worse…

    Yeah I agree, text based websites, especially news sites, have no excuse being this bloated.

    Let’s not forget that us, developers, tend to have better equipment than the average user, and thus are more prone to not noticing the effects that inefficient software has on the final users.

    Great point that I didn’t think about before.

      Yeah it’s very easy to forget. I have fallen to that “illusion” myself too.
