Tom MacWright shares some thoughts around how the web loses on performance and accessibility because web pages continue to grow in size and complexity.

He makes a distinction between the document web (blogs etc.) and the application web. He suggests to create an alternative browser for the document web which supports a lightweight markup language like Markdown.

The problem is that the “document web” is often plagued by application characteristics - it’s the JavaScript and animations and complexity that makes your average newspaper website an unmitigated disaster.
