re: If your site is simple enough, ditch bootstrap. Nowadays it's not a huge help anyway.

Definitely.

If I was more well supported (i.e in Microsoft based browsers), I'd use flex grid because I've had a lot of success using it on my .NET Core Podcast website

95% for flex box :) More than enough.
88% for grid which is not that bad.

You can do most of the layouts via flex. But yeah, I can't wait to use grid for everything :)

Also, when you ditch bootstrap you can ditch jQuery, double win :D

Exactly this. I'm not a huge fan of jQuery and it's massive, so ditching that will reduce page load times by sooo much.

As an update to this: I spent a few hours re-writing the web app to use flex box with a few other optimisation suggestions here in the comments, and the application now renders (without a cache) in around 400-500 ms.

Just need to shave a little overhead off by utilising a better font. Maybe I should use Variable Fonts or something similar.
