Google tweaks Chrome's lazy-loading images to help save more data

Google tweaks Chrome's lazy-loading images to help save more data

Google Chrome has supported native lazy-loading images since Chrome 76, which first rolled out a year ago. When websites utilize the feature, they can help you save some precious data by only loading images when they're about to come into view. Google has decided to make that feature even more efficient, reducing the threshold that determines when to start loading images that you are about to scroll to. That should help save you even more data.

Google Chrome to support lazy loading by default, starting with version 75

Google Chrome to support lazy loading by default, starting with version 75

With ever heavier and more complex websites, protocols like lazy loading are a gift from heaven – they allow sites to only download images and iframes the user sees, leaving out those that are out of view. While that has been possible through JavaScript libraries for years, native implementations should always be favored, since they're the least resource hungry. This is exactly what the Chrome team has been working on for the last year, with first hints in February and a test on Canary that started in August. Now, Google announced that it will enable it by default starting with Chrome 75 stable in May.

'Lazy loading' feature to speed up browsing now available in Chrome Canary

'Lazy loading' feature to speed up browsing now available in Chrome Canary

Web pages are becoming more and more complex, but browser vendors have been hard at work trying to offset that with performance and caching improvements. For example, Service Workers allow sites to cache certain data locally to speed up load times (or work offline entirely). 'Lazy loading' is another performance enhancement that has been in development, and now it has arrived in the Canary channel of Chrome.

Chrome might begin testing a built-in Lazy Loading mechanism for images and iframes

Chrome might begin testing a built-in Lazy Loading mechanism for images and iframes

The Chrome team seems to always be working on many ways to quicken page loading times and speed up our access to information. The latest proposed test, which hasn't been implemented yet, is a built-in Lazy Loading mechanism for images and iframes. According to the Google Chromium group, work is underway to test and implement this new feature in Chrome for Android.

What Lazy Loading really means is that the page you open will only load images and iframes above the fold (what you can see), thus speeding up the process so you're not stuck waiting for something at the bottom of the page to load.
