It's in Google, Microsoft, and Apple's interest to bloat web standards so that they're the only ones capable of implementing the browsers. Firefox just follows along and implements everything for plaudits. Getting rid of JavaScript or pinning it to a very minimum set would fix a lot of the problems. We don't need this much advanced CSS either. Even the markup has grown beyond its need. The question is what do you want from your browser? Right now the goal is to tack on every feature that a full operating system has, and then some. There needs to be some alternative well-defined standard that keeps a small subset of what we have today. That will probably require someone with vision and initiative to lead the project and see it through. Standards bodies almost always lead to bloat because adding shit justifies their existence. So you need someone to keep everything in check.

Not that anon, but something tangible we could do is build alternate browsers. I don't agree with every line of this essay but I do agree with most of it https://lukesmith.xyz/articles/every-web-browser-absolutely-sucks/

I've been evaluating Java, or possibly Python with the performance-critical parts ported to Cython, as a platform to build a browser upon. You get memory safety to eliminate a large class of vulns. And the JVM is quite fast, in fact JIT could even be better in some cases for a long-running program like a browser. And there's a great ecosysystem for libraries. C++ is also an option, or even C for those who are in it for the long haul.

Or build an entirely new Network from the ground up that can provide both secure end-to-end connectivity and infrastructure independence using a type of alternative technology that's both practical to implement and readily accessible but currently  in an archaic state and long forgotten. A new carrier that uses no existing ISP, third-party infrastructure or "blockchain" nonsense that you would have full autonomy over on the individual node level with both download and upload speeds of up to 96 kilobits per second over a single channel.

LOL case in point

Serious talk: While it's easy to rag on browsers themselves, because they totally DO SUCK (and always have,) and could trivially be MUCH better if brought to the standard of quality for practically any other type of software, are they really the source of that much badness in practice, by themselves?

Take a modern ChromeFariFox browser, and load up a svelte sane XHTML+CSS page, semantically marked up for alternate or fallback CSS, and no or minimal JS as appropriate to its purpose. It's not perfect, but it's reasonably fast, stable, pretty, and usable.

FAR AND AWAY the biggest problem with the modern web isn't modern bloated browsers, nor modern bloated WHATWG "living standards", nor as >>6279 suggests the centralized brittle topology of TCP/IP, nor even the consoomerized walled garden botnet bloat phones/tablets normalfags use to access it. Those are all problems, and fixing them would be good, but the misery of using the modern web would not noticably improve.

The web's problem is quite simply THE WEB ITSELF

I'm not sure how that could ever be fixed, aside from encouraging people to write webpages less app-like, and code apps less web-like, sadly the fact so many nudevs are unfamiliar with any toolchain other than webshit means exactly the opposite is happening.

That said, if I were to spitball a tentative solution, I think about 90% of the problem could be solved by the creation of a protocol for Db CRUD GUIs amenable to native clients, which encompasses all or nearly all the functionality of the most noisome "webpages that shouldn't be webpages"/"apps that shouldn't be apps".

Unfortunately, that is not bad enough: WebAssembly.
Why compile your program to your machine's assembly when you can create a theoretical machine, implement an emulator for it, and add that emulator to the browser? Now you have more freedom to add even more layers. Run Godot in your browser! Why the fuck not?

False

X irreparably has always been and will always be a recursive fractal of horseshit on every level, each successful attempt at "improving X" has had "throw X in the dustbin of history where it belongs" as step #0. As long as Wayland is less of a joke than X, which it is, it's still a massive improvement.

>The web is bad because most content are inefficient programs for inefficient virtual machines
I submit that including a VM inside your hypertext document renderer isn't necessarily a kiss of death. Hypercard, M$ Office, Acrobat (heck, PostScript itself!), etc., never succumbed to reimplementing themselves inside themselves as the dominant (or even a common) use case. I think the actual cause of this is a failure of network software authors to write new crossplatform protocols/formats for things that are not documents since browsers took over.

There are a bunch of things that could've fixed that, like plugins, HTML/HTTP being extended with non-web features, browsers adding non-web protocols (e.g.: RSS, WebDAV, WebM, WebRTC), and dedicated (especially mobile) apps theoretically independent of browsers, but none of them seem to break free from every prominent implementation being written in JS and presented via HTML/CSS.

A depressingly typical case study is Skype since the M$ sellout. It used to be something very much like Matrix, a publicly documented decentralized P2P protocol with official native clients which themselves offered a publicly documented plugin API. It was gradually transformed into something like Discord, a completely centralized and opaque service that only the single official bloated web/Electron client can connect to.

Good observation. Allow me to amend my previous line.
<The web is bad because most content are inefficient programs for inefficient virtual machines; and too many programs are on the web.
Continuing with how the web is bad, there are three parts.
>most contents are inefficient programs
Most javashit and webapps are shit code. Javashit and the web programming environment makes it very easy for novices to produce something quickly, for example the one-line-dependency phenomenon, the web-based build system. But writing fast doesn't mean writing good, it is too easy for beginners to pile up shit that are impressive looking and those shit just stay there forever.
The web programming environment also tries very hard to hide the bare metal. This encourage the programmer to be ignorant about machine limits and efficiency.
>inefficient virtual machines
Despite hardware acceleration and million optimization layers in V8, html/css/js is slow. The browser on its own takes up tons of resources. Rendering html/css is pretty slow compared to a real display server. In any case, a VM is going to take much more resource than a native purpose-built binary.
>too many programs are on the web

Replies: >>6347
>>6343
>too many programs are on the web
>>6339 is right about the above not being a problem. There are always bad programs and platforms. They are not going away even if the web is gone or redesigned. The problem is there are too many of them. The average program is a web program, an inefficient program running on an inefficient VM. It doesn't even have to be the web, imagine webtorrent but in MS word macros or online banking but in pdf or your printer. I don't want to begin thinking about the horror.
With how bad the web is defined, let's move on to why.
The major problem is why the web is so popular. As technologies and techniques improve, the average product should be superior than any previous average products. How is the opposite true? Notice the web and computer programs are not the only field following this pattern. Cars, education, phones, books, everything seems to follow this pattern. Why is that?

From what I've seen and heard, I can speculate that these following things contribute to quality decline:

1. The sphere of proprietary teaching and design is focusing more on certification, and factory-churn-learning than it is actually teaching a trade or practice.
2. The thrill of looking for costs to cut has them cutting so many corners that they've boiling-frogged themselves out of product quality.
3. The people that used to be in charge and kept shit in order are gone, the companies have replaced them with people who are out of touch with making a good product.
4. The higher ups have it in their head that they know better, and act like anyone who says otherwise is a complete moron.
5. Social politicking is more-valued in business environments than actual business or design competence.
6. The pencil pushers and social-politickers are completely-oblivious to actions and policies that boil down to "greed, plain and simple.".
7. At the end of the day, they just don't care about software design.

Very good responses. There are many possible explanations for such pattern. Which one is it? Let's go from the opposite perspective.
Why do superior theories, technologies and inventions take over the previous ones?
Here I am assuming human are the ones making choices, because eventually something has to be the end of the analysis, and all environmental factors can be part of the choice.
Each adopter is either an existing user of the previous product or not. The cost-benefit analysis is as follow:
new product value - (new product cost - switch over cost) > previous product value - previous product cost
Where previous product cost can be zero the previous product is still working; and value can be taken for a time period.
For a new product to overcome existing product:
>it must look like a good deal
>the deal must look better than the old stuff
When there are enough users of the new product, the old product is used less and less. With less profit and incentive, eventually the previous product is not produced any more.
Adopters of superior products paid less for more, due decisions like this, over a long period of time, they amass more resources than the rest. They should have more decision power than those making worse decisions, either by having more children or by supporting organizations related to better products.
Competition is the force behind such improvement, whether it is by making better products or buying better products.

Imagine a new product superior than the previous, each unit is cheaper to make, and it is more reliable, faster, easily extensible and last long. What could be stopping it to take over?
The replies linked answerers the question. But the reason for those answers to be happening, why is that?

>Why can companies afford to focus on fake certifications?
Because getting a job isn't about what you know, it's about 'who' you know. Also, people attach themselves to award and achievement, because people perceive those as success more than experience or knowhow. 

>Why can education providers afford to apply factory-churn-learning?
They do it because they slap their teachers with feel-good-pep-talks to justify not fucking paying them, all while raising costs to line their pockets. AKA, greed.

>Why can companies afford to cut corners?
Because it's "easier" to make a pajeet code a program and send the real developers in to untangle the spaghetti code.

>Why can normalfags afford to be stupid (and why are they normal)?
>How come normalfags aren't all dead already?
Normalfags are people who are mostly or completely tech-unsavvy. The biggest lie about normalfags is that anon buys into the belief that they're emotionally or mentally-sound when they're actually not.

"Normal" is relative to specific cultures, as one man's normal is another man's degeneracy. That's why they're not dead, "normal" as anon thinks it is, doesn't actually exist. It's the same reason perfectionists chase after "perfect" things and freak out when they never get it.

>Why didn't anyone make their own brand of shampoo and made it big?
Various factors - 1. Getting big takes time. 2. everyone who already made it big could try and want to sabotage your efforts. 3. You could fuck it up. 4. there are just as many people trying to make it big too, and they could have a vested interest in seeing you fail.

>Success doesn't necessary breeds failure, why can the successors afford to doom their legacy?
Apathy and the egoish attitude of thinking "you know better," is a hell of a drug. 

>PS: IQ is following the same pattern. The bell curve should be moving higher and higher, but why are most normalfags stupid?
IQ at this point, is a meme. Just a way to add another certification/award/achievement that means little in the grand scheme of things.

Forrest and the trees. Human ego and abuser-personality-tendencies has been there forever.
The world is a complex, the only way to understand it is through simple ideas. That is to say, a common answer and reason to questions.
Every question I asked can be summarized into why can companies cut corners without getting bankrupt?
The answer is monopoly.
Monopoly implies little to no competition. Microsoft can cut corners however they want and every nigger women will still be using it.
Companies can afford to focus not on merit, but on anything else because they don't have enough competition. Monopoly can be limited to a small group of people and entities.
Education providers can afford to apply shit learning because there are only so many universities, and companies are hiring shit learners.
Eventually this is due to the attempt to monopolize freedom and power.
