513 requests. 82MB.

Facepalm when you have to wait for more than 2 minutes to access your files because the the entire internet is getting downloaded along with what you want.

I so want to disable uMatrix in Firefox to just see how many requests this page is making!

Also, what the hell is a dll.js file?! I guess somewhere in those requests is the entire windows SDK! 😩
