I think Lamar Smith needs to be monitored.
Graphic designers ruining the web to be honest, im glad that we dont have the bland and boring pages we used to, check out some of your favorite websites using the waybackwhen machine, they are awful. Now, on the subject of website sizes: the average web page is now 1MB, and its growing, in large part, thanks to embedded ads and stupid content. Does anyone remember popups? yea, those were sometimes huge and annoying, and NOW, its ads that scream at you. If you run Firefox with AdBlockPlus, and NoScript, most pages are only a few hundred kilobytes now. Youtube loads up with only using 485KB. Its the ads, and nothing more. Block them, and most sites go back to being small again. Oh, and FYI, I just checked youtube with ads running, and it was a little over 2MB, and then once I blocked ads, i got ~485KB. Also, websites with infinite scrolls(think facebook here) get infinity large. I just loaded facebook to check and see, but on first load it was ~1MB, and then I scrolled for 30 seconds, and it loaded a whopping 28MB worth of stuff, and that was mostly bland stuff, with no pictures. Imagine if pictures were enabled. I feel bad for people with caps, because if the current trend continues, just plain web browsing will be close to 250GB per month. I already do 30GB in just browsing, and go way over charters 500GB cap every month for gaming and everything else.
