The internet of yesteryear has changed - and not for the better. Thankfully, more and more people are realizing this, and deciding to promote using client-side and server-side resources more efficiently again. One of these initiatives is the 1MB club - an exclusive list of websites that use less than 1 megabyte of data of total resources on their page load.

Achieving this is surprisingly simple: Don’t use images for everything. When you use images, use them wisely, in modern formats. Don’t use Javascript for everything, and keep away from multimegabyte frameworks. Keep those third-party cookies and ad trackers off your page. Everyone can do that, and we all would profit from a more responsive, faster network.
