I've heard it said that with every advance in hardware performance comes an equal increase in software complexity to use up all of the gains.

I believe that's what we have in this situation.

I'm using a DNS blocker of my own design and I currently have approximately 11.5 million domains in the block list. Aside from how impressed I am at how well my DNS blocker is performing with so many domains, I'm impressed at how quickly web pages load now that most of the tracking and ads have been stripped.

Even pages that always take a long time, like Rumson, NJ 10-Day Weather Forecast | Weather Underground[^], now load zippity quick! Snappy performance. The difference is so stark that I feel we should all start charging the websites for the extraneous processing and electricity they use on our dimes, and that wastes so much of our time.

I cringe at the thought of how much tracking and analytics must be going on in the unfiltered web. It's truly astounding.



The difficult we do right away...
...the impossible takes slightly longer.
