So Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages are here to make the internet fast.
This (highlighting by me):
If you visit Google’s own page “How AMP speeds up performance” there is a convenient list of the actual things you could do to your own site to make it fast like AMP. There is no secret sauce.
Which begs for this:
“The secret ingredient of my brand new web service that makes mobile pages super fast is … nothing!”
“You heard me! Nothing! There is no secret ingredient to improve performance!”
—“Wait, wait—it’s just plain old internet?? You don’t add some kind of special, proprietary HTML variant or something?”
“Well, a little, but it’s basically cosmetics. To make something special, you just have to make people believe it’s special!”
