what is web bloat?
― sarahell, Friday, 2 December 2022 06:00 (five days ago) link
there's a hidden kind of web bloat where a site will load tons of frameworks and libraries to show simple things.here's a popular article that explains it (ironically the live version is so lean, it won't bother to load working images)https://web.archive.org/web/20190324214252/https://idlewords.com/talks/website_obesity.htm
but there's also a loud and proud web bloat where visually assaulting you on all sides is the point:https://www.lingscars.com/funny enough, this monstrosity is probably less bloated underneath than most "minimalist" e-commerce sites, though they spent a few bytes for a joke you can only see if you view source.
basically ilxor.com is the opposite of web-bloat.
