Not all internets are top of the line internets, and given the number of books that PF1e has and PF2e will presumably eventually have, this would probably murder my internet connection to try to load, even if it is purely text. And the PRD isn't always purely text.
Especially the online version of them, which should be one single document (not multiple web pages) so that you can search for keywords.
You can format it such that it's listed by books, but no reason to make it separate pages.
I don't mean to be rude, but I really don't want the decision to be based around page size and someone working with a 56k modem.
The page size of the first page of this thread is about ~260 kb. So even if you were working with a 56k modem, it should take less than 10 seconds to download the data. I think this is a fair. Also, the page includes pictures, which if eliminated could reduce the size.
The first page of this thread is 50 posts. Just going off the PRD alone, that's something like 20 books (and the PRD is more than a couple books out of date), each of which has I believe a couple hundred pages. If we rough estimate 200 pages per book (undoubtedly a serious under-estimation) that's 4,000 pages of information you're trying to put on a single web page. I *hardly* think that's an equivalent comparison point.
