Doom was released 25 years ago today. It was about 2.39 MB, the size of an average webpage today. News sites average closer to 8 MB.
@falsemirror I have a policy, JS only when needed, use SVGs/CSS when possible, optimize all images.
I don't like the modern website philosophy of bolting on JS until it works. Those "one page" websites annoy me as well, messes up my navigation history.
@falsemirror ha ... good time ... remember playin at leaked alpha version from some BBS at the time... and later with the editor and code. so much optimisations needed...
also some times after that there was the Magic Carpet 64Kb demo I saw live released at the party ... http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=1525
