The modern web has become a monstrosity that is more akin to an application distribution platform more than anything else at this point and it is a terrible one at that.

It is highly inefficient and wasteful. Any program written in HTML/CSS/JS is by default extremely resource intensive in comparison to, for example, its C++ counterpart. It hogs your memory, wastes your CPU cycles and drains your mobile's battery. Not only that, but on the desktop every electron program ships their own chromium browser, which is not what one would consider a lightweight program. Same people writing those shitty inefficient programs are devout environmentalists. What a joke.
The modern browser is a beast. A single person can not possibly implement a standard compliant browser on his own. Which is why we are stuck with a few huge browsers and they all suck equally bad.
The web should have been for _one_ thing, and _one_ thing only: static interlinked documents. Everything else on top is bloat at the expense of basically everything.
TL;DR: The modern web sucks dick.
