Lazily load iframes and images via ‘loading’ attribute - Chrome Release 76

Support the ‘loading’ attribute, which can be used to defer the load of below-the-fold iframes and images on the page until the user scrolls near them. This is to reduce data usage, memory usage, and to speed up above-the-fold content. Web developers can opt-in to lazy load by specifying loading=lazy on <iframe> and <img> elements.

Enabled by default in:

  • Chrome for desktop release 76
  • Chrome for Android release 76
