Re: I don't mind the weight of pages

BBC is one of the worst offenders.

First load a full-width mobile site with blurry-assed images. Then load some javascript. Then detect you're on a desktop and grind away on the DOM, re-writing the page element by element until it's all replaced.

It's called PROGRESSIVE ENHANCEMENT BRAH!
