Google Chrome Version 79+ rolled out the new feature that allows developers too lazy load images by adding simple
loading="eager" attributes to images.
Don't skip stay tuned till end of the article. I have shown you various implementation and tips too :)
If you don't want the images to be loaded till the time users scrolls down to the content which is located off the screen then you can use the following loading attribute
<img src="image.png" loading="lazy" alt="Alternate name of the image">
<picture> <source media="(min-width: 800px)" srcset="large.jpg 1x, larger.jpg 2x"> <img src="photo.jpg" loading="lazy"> </picture>
If you want the images to be loaded immediately irrespective of the offscreen images or on screen images then you can use eager loading.
<img src="image.png" loading="eager" alt="Alternate name of the image">
<picture> <source media="(min-width: 800px)" srcset="large.jpg 1x, larger.jpg 2x"> <img src="photo.jpg" loading="eager"> </picture>
<img loading=lazy> is supported by most popular Chromium-powered browsers (Chrome, Edge, Opera), Firefox and the implementation for WebKit (Safari) is in progress.
Avoid lazy-loading images that are in the first visible viewport. Google recommends to add loading="lazy" to only images that are offscreen so make sure to keep in mind.
Hope this trick will help you load your website very faster than earlier with slightest change to your image.
Happy Coding :)
