Many modern websites are bloated and slow for no good reason. One of the trends of this year is our collective admission that complexity and bloat are real issues. The stuff that we make is getting more and more complex, and the more complicated it gets, the less we understand about its inner workings and the ways to make it work better and faster. That’s the main reason I migrated this website to vanilla CSS. I don’t want to contribute to ever-increasing complexity, and I believe that we need to focus more on simplifying our tools and approaches.
