@resist1984 Sigh. I think I knew that.
I don't run Tor much on this device, though it's been my mainstay on desktop for a couple of months. I do feel that pain.
(The amount of web shut off by Tor is ... large.)
Even archive.is goes all Cloudflare on Tor, so that alternative doesn't work....
(Wikipedia, Mastodon generally, and Diaspora generally, have no problems, which covers much of my use case.)
@whirli Now we need a search engine that gives the option of highlighting or giving high rankings to results that qualify for the 512kb Club.
@resist1984 Annoyingly, this purist website still manages to find time to stick Google Analytics tracking on.
@resist1984 @david I actually put together an opinionated guide inspired the Motherfucking Website and the actual best motherfucking website. Text-oriented websites should work just fine in browser engines that don’t have a billion-dollar annual budget (NetSurf, Dillo, w3m, lynx, edbrowse, etc).
Also see the other small-web clubs: the 1MB Club, 512 KB Club, 250kb Club, 10 KB Club, NoJS Club, 1024B Club, and 0kb Club. I managed to get on all except the last two; my brotli-compressed homepage is a whopping 4-5 kilobytes (depending on which icons your browser loads).
I’d say that for a text-oriented website (most blogs), a 50kb JS-free homepage should be good enough.
@resist1984 Why is that website behind a CAPTCHA? It literally takes more resources to deliver the CAPTCHA than it takes to deliver the actual website!
