Web Since the Last Decade

Has the Web content changed for better for the past 10-plus year? Yes for multimedia content and no for plain web site. Why so? I think most of us tend to focus on the fancy and flashy part instead of the content of the site. For example, I recently came across Philip Greenspun's website. Simple and boring site design (still plain old HTML) but the quality of the content is far better than most site out there. Furthermore, almost everything are still viewable (see screenshot) with Lynx, the text browser, in any possible resolution (default responsive web design). If you're making a content-rich website, please make it as simple as possible. I really miss the old World Wide Web.
