    Plenty of sites without ads load slowly too. It's because they're made with bullshit Javascript frameworks. The web was much faster and better, more responsive, and less glitchy when people used the real DOM.

    Latency?... you mispronounced 'adware & tracking shit' there James.
    Seriously, latency and ping and all those other things you describe pale in comparison to ads and tracking scripts.

    0:27 "So, in this age of gigabit fibre service, 4K video streaming and massively multiplayer online games..."

    Why does my ISP only provide up to 100Mbps connection speed as the fastest?

    It's not only about patience. A lot of times, if a website takes more than 3 or 4 seconds to load, it means it won't load at all. Better not waste my time then.

    Plus there is a lot of content (esp images) that are bloated or unwanted. Ie. an ad jpeg that is 200K while the content png is just 40K

    No mention of bufferbloat. If you're not on fibre internet (and sometimes even if you are), bufferbloat is pretty much the number one cause of poor performance when multitasking on the internet (which includes someone else in the house watching netflix or similar). ISPs largely mitigated it within their networks back in 2012, but the cable/dsl modem+router combos still shipping to consumers lack the queue management required to fix it. This lets the ISP say everything is fine on the connection, but causes lag and stuttering when the connection is under load, which they hope will prompt customers to purchase higher tier connections. Solution: get a dedicated modem and put an OpenWRT modem inside it with SQM enabled.

    Nothing about the fact that webservers can be congested because they have an outbound bandwidth limitation, which is a very common cause for hangs on the web? ...and it would have made your opening analogy make more sense.

    That's why I use NoScript extension for Firefox. So I can block the scripts that don't need to load for the website to function.

    whoever did the research on this needs to learn about the magic that is compressing javascript.. and generally just packaging all scripts into one minimized file to avoid all of the actual latency that isn't caused by slow hardware that for some reason needs more than a few ms for javascript stuff lol...
