I logged onto kelly blue book today which is around the 400th most popular website on the internet in the US. Immediately when I got to the page, the main page file loaded in 0.12 seconds. So far so good. Then I decided that I actually wanted to use this website. Kbb.com had other plans though. To prevent me from using their service they immediately loaded up 12 animated advertisements each in a separate frame. It took 3.93 seconds to load all the additional content from 162 sources and 16 seconds for the page to be scrollable and fully processed by the browser. 16 seconds. in 2014 16 seconds and 12 animated ads. Wow. I started using the internet on the most basic entry level computer, which only had a 56k modem and a processor with 275,000 transistors and 4 MB of ram. I'm now using the internet on one of the fastest computers and connections possibly available. My internet speed is 2,000 times faster. My CPU has one million times more processing power, and I have 16 thousand times more memory. Yet, the average internet page actually runs worse as technology improves. For the love of god, why can't programers stop exponentially increasing the clutter, complexity, and bloat on the internet? I don't need or want 12 advertisements with 46 buttons per page 55 widgets, and 8 different types of flash videos with 650 separate jpgs, six different types of sources for the ads on each page, and a kitchen sink. Apple.com on the other hands seem to do fine, I hear that's the home page to a pretty innovative and cutting edge company... and currently Apple.com only has 1 picture and 10 buttons, and 21 words. Nothing else. The page loads and is usable instantly. Amazing how that works?
