I was doing some searches on Google and I noticed that the size of the webpage in the SERP is not mentioned.

I know it used to be. I see it not mentioned in Internet Explorer and Mozilla.

I am not sure if this is something important? Would like to see what you guys think.

Good spot!

That will be really annoying if they are going to stick with not showing page size. It is particularly useful for me when Google produces split snippets on obscure queries.

Noticed this myself a couple days ago as well. I'm not surprised, as I never thought it was anything that really added value for a normal user.

Agree with above post

Totally useless on today's broadband/fast internet

I'd prefer to see [flash] or possibly [video] (if the site has videos)
