I blame a lot on Javascipt libraries like Ajax where lazy webmasters
include them to use 1% of what they stick in the page.  But yes, every
page requires 50 or so DNS lookups.  And web pages have gotten to be 3
megabytes and over.  And web servers have timeouts so lots of times I
see them time out before the pages load, I have to hit reload 5-10
times fairly often.  The OpenBSD site is fast, stupid sites like
Facebook I avoid.
