Modern Web in Numbers

How bloated are popular websites?

Important note: beside the obvious page size problem, TTI (Time To Interactive) is also a huge problem - a lot of websites take way too much time to become interactive (usable). This problem is more pronounced on mobile phones and other slower devices.
