Why does no-one ever mention the extremely major point that lags and delays aren't just caused by downloading ads, but also by multiple file ops for up to five-hundred advertising cookies when you open a web page (or click through to the next one on the same site).

Even with SSDs, file ops are the biggest performance hit in most instances of everything -- and even if you reject advertising cookies, they write a cookie to say you've rejected it, which has to be read when the page opens, and re-dated (so only two file ops, making it an improvement, but still far from perfect).

The advertising and analysis cr@p is out of control.
Limits to what and how much sites are permitted to write to visitors' machines need to be set in stone.
