GWT apps are Small!

I just wrote a small DOJO page that has nothing on it but a combobox with 10 hard coded entires. I ran it thru firebug and the total download size was: 268 kb. Then I ran the gwt app i am working on thru firebug ( a full app with multiple screens, dozens of widgets). The entire download size of the gwt app was 98 kb. To summarize:

268kb: DOJO app with one combobox
98kb: a complete gwt application
