The web is DOOM'd: Average page now as big as id's DOS classic

Primus Secundus Tertius

@Ken H

I save, for personal use, the occasional worthwhile web wisdom (aka www) and then edit it to clean text.

The average el Reg piece is 2K to 3K bytes, but up to 10K for extended articles. Other publications are 5K to 15K bytes.

So most of our bandwidth goes on pictures and video, which add little to the occasional well written piece; and mostly to adverts which add nothing.

I resent the way adverts dominate the byte count, with their feeble excuse that they are paying the bills.
