So slashdot.org is now running a CSS / HTML 4.01 solution that generates nice, snappy pages with quick load time. It uses less bandwidth than before, and is mostly standards compliant. Except, there’s a catch. Using the free load time analysis tool I found online, I found the following breakdown:
HTML Images: 1859
CSS Images: 0
Total Images: 1859
Now, ask yourself the following question:
Do I want to visit a website that is composed of 63% advertising?
