4 Best Lazy Loading Plugins to Load Your Blog Super Fast
What is Lazy Load?
When sites have tons of images, each time an image loads an HTTP request is sent to the server and hence increasing the time to load page. Lazy Load solves this problem and only loads the images when they are above the fold. This way whenever a page is scrolled and if image is appearing within the scroll area, its loaded in time. This technique load pages very fast and saves a website from sending thousands of requests to server and bandwidth usage.
