The web is DOOM'd: Average page now as big as id's DOS classic

Most of the page bloat is due to images, which take up on average 1,463KB of data

Yes, that. Am I the only one to bother optimising images for web use? I come across pages with the images approx. 4000x3000 that let the browser do the work of scaling it down to 400x300. People like that should be forced to exclusively access the Net through a 14.4k baud modem for a year. Grrr.
