Native Lazy Load with HTML5

No Comments

Native lazy loading in html5 has finally arrived!

For many years the loading of images has been a complicated issue for web designers in NYC, and all over the world, this because of the loading times this represents.

Currently the websites use a large number of images, and many of these are off the screen, the user has to scroll to be seen, however all are downloaded in the browser once we open a web page.

For this, with the help of javascript web developers created a way to do something called lazy load, what this script does is stop downloading an image until it is visible on the screen. This helps improve the performance and speed of a website.

Members of the Google Chrome development team announced a few weeks ago that it is already possible to lazy load natively with HTML5, this is great news for all web page designers. Less libraries, less code.

The way to implement native lazy load is very simple, and it is also possible to use it for other elements such as an iframe.

However, at the moment this is only possible with the Chrome browser, so it is necessary to continue managing the download through JavScript. Hopefully in the coming months, more browsers such as Firefox, Safari and Oprera will integrate it so as to completely eliminate the extra scripts on our website.
