    When I was 13, I remember being blown away by the game [Doom](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doom_(1993_video_game). It had a 3D engine, graphics and sound like I'd never seen before. At about 2.25 MB it took 40 minutes on my dial up modem.

    Nowadays, the average web page is bigger than that. That's insane.

    I think we're going to see a return to lightweight websites. Simple. Focused on the words.

    This will be good for designers: less cruft, less ads mucking up layouts, less scripts to load, less heavy fonts.
