I just disable them via /etc/hosts because I can't tolerate any more useless javascript putting load on my CPU.

My workstation (E5-2640) has seen multiple generations of operating systems, video editing software, DAWs.

Browsers and web browsing in general is the only thing that I can tell it's getting consistently worse year after year.

I know it's an odd metric but 10-15 seconds to fully render a newspaper homepage is more than it takes for my full DAW setup (Cubase + FL Studio as VST plugin) to fully come up with tracks loaded and play button ready. I don't even recall dialup being this bad.

Funny because I feel this way about Cubase, it consistently gets worse. My projects take much longer to load than any webpage, fwiw.
