I think the early Apple developers teach a good lesson: If you use the machines and connections that your users will use, you'll make a much better system.
Developing on a T1 line, I can imagine not caring in the slightest when page sizes zoom up.

I've only recently discovered that speed isn't the only issue. I'm using mobile internet, through which I've managed to download pages at 6 Mbps, but I'm limited to something like 32MB/day. A large site will load fast, but I've taken to disabling images and avoiding video.

The hardest part is to find out every limitation your users can have. The list is extensive.
