Modern Web in Numbers

Modern web is beyond broken. Even the simplest websites are becoming performance, privacy and accessibility nightmares. And it's only getting worse.

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.
