What we had hoped might become a regular conference to be held every two years, proved to be so popular that it is becoming an annual event. The second conference will take place in May at York University. The number of social scientists outside of marketing who conduct CCT research is large and growing.
Who knew overuse of JS and fancy graphical effects where they're not needed could negatively impact user experience? Could it be that all the web devs using 20 CDNs, cramming frameworks, externally provided analytics, advertisement providers and fancy layout eye-candy were wrong all along? At least load the god damn text, I don't care if it'll look like trash, just don't show me a blank page The irony is that everyone calls for people to not use Flash, and then they go out of their way to recreate the abysmal experience without it, so really nothing changed as far as UX goes.
Remember when pages didn't load at all unless you had flash installed? Well here's some nostalgia for you, won't load unless you run all the JS on the page and then you have to "enjoy" a bloated joke of a website, but Jesus does it have eye-candy!!! And as you add addons to rectify the many offending web pages, then the performance penalty of those quickly equal to that of crappy JS.
I was so happy with Xombrero as my browser, but it's stagnant and insecure now. I do like my Firefox but with all the blocking addons it's slow, and without them it's slower not that it's its fault. With a little layout to match the original website.
Something like how streaming services adaptively subsample data, or like how NX tries to compress the X window protocol. Obviously this would be patchy, but it could be much better than "FAIL".
I'd just like to point out that there are browser that cater to this specific demographic slow connections.
Ever since the days of running Java applications on my old Sony Ericsson phone, Opera Mini has been my favorite. As far as the browser is concerned, the website can be as heavy as it wishes -- it will pass through Operas proxy and be compressed according to user preferences.
This could include not loading any images nothing newor load all images with very low quality. You can also select whether you want things like external fonts and JS to load, or if you want to block that too. When I moved to a new country my first SIM card had one of those "unlimited but incredibly slow" plans.
Opera Mini was a life saver. I guess my point is that we shouldn't get stuck in optimization paralysis if there is no sound and standardized server-side way to solve this issue and there doesn't seem to be. It would be nice if browsers had a way to tell web servers that they're operating under low bandwidth, like the do-not-track flag, but AFAIK this does not exist.
Until that exists, and I don't mean to suggest we go back to the days of "Made for IE9" here, maybe some responsibility needs to be shifted to the client side.
As long as you design your websites in a sane way, they will pass through these low bandwidth proxies with flying colors. Maybe you don't need to spend hundreds or thousands of man-hours optimizing your page when you could insert a discrete indicator at the top of the screen for anyone taking longer than X seconds to load that there are many browsers available for low bandwidth connections, and that they might want to try them out?
There shouldn't be a reason for a big page with many resources to not load - it should just be slower. Interestingly mosh often still works beautifully in such scenarios. So instead of focusing on HTTP2 or AMP and other hacks to make the net faster for the best-case scenario, I'd rather see improvements to make it work much more reliably in less than perfect conditions.
Maybe it's time for TCP2 with sane r defaults for our current needs.
This is my life with Comcast the faster of the two "choices"! I also have Comcast in my ski house in the sticks and it's faster than Palo Alto. But my wired connection is so slow that I sometimes use my phone on LTE to read a page that hangs on Comcast.
