Page sizes on the web

It’s been quite a while since I have built a website. At the time I did it I was very conscious of page size. I was working on a website with many images of pottery, and it was 10 years ago, so there was reason to be concerned. Today I was working on a revision to to add a new SPA. I wanted to put up, and in fact did put up, an image based landing page with screenshots of the now two apps on the site. Comically it turns out I was worried about 150K of images ! A quick search on the web revealed a very informative article about page size growth over recent years. SeeĀ to understand why I needn’t have been concerned.
