Using the modern web doesn't feel empowering. It feels immensely frustrating.

The web is barely usable without ad-blocking. Pages take an age to load and the content jumps around as more ads download and display. Also the ads are spying on you.

The entire JS ecosystem is dependency hell and sometimes you have to download massive JS files just to view a web page. The JS is probably also spying on you.

Worse still, JS is also probably why the Back button doesn't work properly on so many sites.

@neilalexander in fact it is possible to implement javascript handle pressing back button well 😸

However, you are so right! Modern web is bullshit and I write it from modern web application full of react and other things like that - mastodon. Here is an irony - modern web allows us to do very lot of things, which we could not even think about without it
