Google Homepage Size Over Time
This afternoon, I looked at the source of the main Google page with my browser. It spans my whole monitor and takes 15 pushes of the scroll-wheel to see it all. Whither minimalism?
6 points corrected. Thanks ‘qxcv’! Archive, curl, and browser data noted. Thanks ‘zzzwat’!
Time for a log plot. The difference between a browser-acquired page and a simple curl request is an order of magnitude.
I’d be more interested in seeing a chart of the size of the page when gzipped, since the bandwidth delay is so much more than CPU these days.
you mean ‘whither’
Indeed. Fixed. Thanks!
