Text-only websites

I really liked this from Sijmen J. Mulder regarding text-only websites. Web bloat has been a thing for quite a few years now, and it’s good to see that others enjoy the simpler times of text with simple formatting.

I’ve been toying with the idea myself for a long time to do similarly. As an example – my previous post takes over 500 kB to load, while the HTML to build this as text-only is 1.4kB.
