Maybe, just maybe, the site is a tadbit fatter that what it might be really-really *needed*, see:

That's one problem of using includes that run on other websites. Never liked the idea. The webpagetest.org looks really good and shows the breakdown fairly well.

As a side note (and though actually "fun" it is a very serious and sad issue :(), Brad Frost put together an extremely nice site to highlight the difference between contents and all the fluff (including the now mandatory "like us on Facebook" :w00t: :ph34r:) around it:

http://tinyurl.com/o3qaxpp

such as:

Popups, jargon, junk mail, anti-patterns, sensationalism, begging for likes, tracking scripts, marketing spam, dark patterns, unskippable ads, clickbait, linkbait, listicles, seizure-inducing banners, captchas, QR codes, barely-visible unsubscribe buttons, 24-hour news networks, carousels, auto-playing audio, bloatware, sudden redirects to the App Store, telemarketing, ticked-by-default subscribe buttons, "your call is important to us", pageview-gaming galleries, native advertising, the list of bul***** goes on and on and on.

 

generically grouped under the term bullĀ§hit.

On the mentioned site you can turn it on and off :yes:.

Even so, the BS still (apparently) "downloads" to your PC (even though it's "invisible"). :unsure:

Clearing the Cache in FF takes a few until the little red light stops. Then I can shut down the PC.

Sure, and that is what happens on most sites nowadays.
