Re: If the goal is increased performance

Something else you might notice is that your Internet provider has 'tuned' their network in a web unfriendly manner. Spectrum, for example has made changes to improve streaming speed in ways that slow down web pages. They prioritize large transfers at the expense of connection setup. So a web page that has 20 scripts and 50 images will load slowly, but your speed tests and streaming will all look great. That means if web developers would put all their javascript in one file they would see a big increase in page load speed. At the expense of a little more RAM. I doubt it would be significant, memory wise though. Currently my browser has 54 processes and is using 3.3gb of RAM.
