Websites have doubled in size every three years. For a myriad of reasons, we've created bigger and more complicated projects to serve our needs, and now the average web page is 3 megabytes, more than the entire 1993 video game DOOM. This is a trend we can change.

Using The Google Chrome Team's Lighthouse analysis, we're going to look at some common causes of bloat that's affecting your page speed, and some good strategies to help your images be a little more reasonable.

Working as the lead developer of a downtown agency, Lemon spends a whole lot of time making websites. Like, over a hundred of them. Large sites for clients like General Mills and the Minnesota Wild, and small sites like damn.dog and idiots.win.
He also hosts a podcast called The F Plus which is probably not appropriate for your particular workplace.
