The Web Sucks Now

Web pages should be blazing fast on 25 year old machines, modulo a little lag from more serious crypto.

Like, I should be able to build 1998 Mozilla against a modern SSL stack on my Silicon Graphics O2, and browsing the web should be nearly as fast as it was using Netscape Navigator 4 on that system when it shipped.

The sole reason it’s not is the hubris of the people developing those web pages.
