1MB Club

An exclusive membership for web pages weighing less than 1 megabyte

The measurement seems to exclude adblocked stuff, and that seems questionable to me.

The concept discriminates against us animated gif lovers, too. ;) Might be more interesting to limit Javascript size?

That said, it’s fun to see how these vary from sleek to good old chunky <table>s.

Wouldn’t this list become super large (and possibly hard to maintain) ? I guess there could be a way of making it check automatically whether pages stain under the 1MB threshold, and even a way for a bot to automatically test and add sites that are proposed in GitHub issues/pull requests.

Also, how are gzipped pages handled? Does it count the gzipped size or the non expanded size?


yeah, it’s sort of a nebulous definition. my guess would be that it would heavily rely on the category of “pages that would be submitted by the kinds of nerds who would care about this list” to limit it.


If you count the gzipped size, then Lemmy would also fit the criteria :)


i mean, yeah, internet websites are super bloated, but are we really at a point where 1mb is a “small” size for a web page? 🤔

Weird Corners of the Internet

    SFW weird corners of the internet. See something amusingly specific? Could belong here. Remember the odd pages you’d come across on StumbleUpon? We can live those days again…

    Filed under Humor/Memes but it doesn’t have to be funny.

    note from kixiQu: I post a good amount of things from href.cool and marijn’s linkroll into this sub because I think they have a lot of fabulous examples. if anyone gets tired of it, DM me.
