    Web pages used to be made by hand.
    Then they were created by various types of software (e.g. this forum's software).
    Then that software tried to make itself universally comparable with every browser out there.
    Then the home computers started having HDMI resolution monitors (1980x1024 instead of 1024x768), so the image size went up -- available bandwidth went from dial-up to 40mbit +.
    Then the browsers offered a more features, so the web pages tried to utilize those features.

    Im sitting here at the mine, 2 degrees from the arctic circle. All of our internet and phones are bounced through a satellite into Yellowknife. The bandwidth just isnt there, so there are many sites that I dont even try going to. Watching youtube here ? Yeah...ummmm....no.
