The worst parts about today’s websites is: they are not self-sufficient. You go the a website and your browser goes to up to a dozen different places collecting some scripts from one, some images from another, some …. you name it. Not to mention mighty bog brother google (“analytics”)...


In the past it was considered a bad practice to force browser of your visitor go to some places outside of your website/ URL /domain.
