I feel the same. And what's even more irrational is that most of these "web apps" look worse than simple HTML pages.
I find it funny, not to say confusing, that all those modern and minimalistic sites look almost like a blank HTML site,
but require several megabytes (almost) worth of scripted code. 🤷♂️
Yes, the absolute absurdity of it all! The 'modern' web is broken, defective, a hideous and bloated mess.
99% of what needs to be done *could* still be done with simple HTML, but we need ridiculous scripting languages which consume absurd amounts of system resources, are inefficient, and unnecessary.
All because modern webdesigners are lazy, kids who can't be bothered to optimize code / write HTML, and only after making a quick buck, and releasing a commercial 'product' / job. Onto the next lucrative web page, no need or time to optimize or even consider "Web 1.0" anymore.
