what is web bloat?

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)

but there's also a loud and proud web bloat where visually assaulting you on all sides is the point:
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.

the ultimate bloat is advertising, some news page thats got javascript coming in from ten different places none of which care about size number of requests etc

extension that auto-redirects the browser to de-bloated frontends for YT, twitter, fandom, etc.

it's mostly intended for privacy but imo it really excels at making the replaced sites tolerable
