The best optimization is deletion
You cannot get a simple system by adding simplicity to a complex system.
(“Nothing is faster than the lack of something. Nothing reduces more bugs than deleting code. There are always two ways - you can add complexity like script loaders or webfont loading tricks or image lazy loading - adding potential bugs, adding permanent complexity - or you can swear off the problem area for good. Sometimes you have to take the complexity hit, but it’s a dream to take the simple road.”)
