An interesting article I found (brief swear warning).

Basically, Web sites are a whole lot bigger and bulkier than they need to be, and this problem contributes to the trend of the Internet being dominated by "walled gardens" rather than nurturing places for creativity. It's a good read with some funny statistics.

7/6 Edit: Typo fix, although "Websity" is still a very fine word in my opinion!

I want to share with you my simple two-step secret to improving the performance of any website.

- Make sure that the most important elements of the page download and render first.

- Stop there.

You don't need all that other crap. Have courage in your minimalism.

There is only one honest measure of web performance: the time from when you click a link to when you've finished skipping the last ad. Everything else is bulls***.

I like how this guy thinks.

This is a very good read, and a nice deconstruction (is this the right word for this?) of a few ridiculous modern web design trends.
