Mobile Websites are getting way to Slow
Have you ever noticed how mobile sites are taking longer and longer to load? When I want read the news on the LA Times, they first load all the fancy animations (while I’m staring at a white page), and then finally the article appears. I understand why it takes so long for them to load, as there is CSS, animating sidebars, customized ads, facebook share buttons, etc.
It is especially annoying when I’m traveling around in the rural parts of Texas and only get 3G/4G service. All these pages take forever to load. All I wanted is just to see the content, but since the scripts are loaded synchronously (which means the scripts have to load before actual webpage is shown), I just get frustrated and give up.
