Using low-speed WiFi on the plane to Japan has been a real eye-opener into website asset size.

Some web pages (which I know are using JavaScript SPA frameworks) take forever to load—if at all.

But stuff like Mastodon, HN, and static sites all load just fine.

@maxdeviant It was really disappointing that lesswrong.com's second version turned out that way. each page is like 9mb.

Someone got so angry that they made a lightweight mirrorsite greaterwrong.com
