The bad thung is that the whole BMP is loaded in a giant HTML table encoded
in a very unefficient way, but worse, everything is using Webfonts of 4K
glyphs, the page takes a lot of memory with those temporary fonts.

The webfonts do not seem to load dynamically on demand. Strane becaise the
page is also full of Javascript, and Javascript would have just loaded the
necessary webfonts on demand, and would have generated the page on the
flow, with just enough rows to fit the screen and still the possibility to
scroll the table, without leaving all those Webfonts active in the document.
Javascript could also have detected suitable fonts already existing on the
PC with the browser, and the page would have been much lighter.
