Since basic jquery is supported in recent MW versions I don't see why lazy image loading is not supported.
Images below the monitor view are only loaded when viewed. This reduces http page loading time by less http requests and faster page building, esp. on gallereis but also on most article page views when people don't scroll.
[This could be done on mobile or desktop or both]
- lazy load all images
- should we only lazy load images beyond "the fold" e.g. images below lead section
Strategies for loading images could be as follows:
- Load images on scroll
- Load images when tapped
