Native lazy-loading for the web

Visit external resource

Now that we have the HTML attribute loading we can set loading="lazy" on our website’s media, and the loading of non-critical, below-the-fold media will be deferred until the user scrolls to them.

This can really improve performance so I’ve implemented it on images and iframes (youtube video embeds etc) throughout this site.

This is currently only supported in Chrome, but that still makes it well worth doing.
