The Modern Web and its Consequences

The modern web has been a disaster for the human race.

No but seriously, the future of the web is doomed. With how web developers carelessly use all kinds of JavaScript frameworks often resulting in multiple megabytes being downloaded before a page can be displayed. It's a ridiculous waste of resources that will require more powerful computers over time even though the computers themselves work just fine and can still be used like normal, but they can't browse the web because of how web developers create websites nowadays.

It's not impossible to create small and resource efficient websites, just look at this site for example, it only loads around 30KB of data. Okay maybe that's a bad example because it doesn't look that pretty, but a website absolutely should not have to load multiple megabytes of data just to display itself.
