There are three types of lazy-loading properties however just two that truly matter:
Lazy, which will be empowered in WordPress 5.4 by default, intends to hold up until the users browser viewport is inside a specific separation before downloading the picture. This process will accelerate a users experience on WordPress websites.
The “Eager” component advises the browser to download the picture immediately.
WordPress 5.4 is currently set to release on March 31, 2020. That date is liable to change depends upon how prepared the release is. But WordPress has been awesome about meeting their deadlines.
According to the WordPress announcement:
“The implementation seeks to enable lazy-loading images by default, providing the loading attribute with value lazy on the following img tags:
Note that loading=”lazy” will only be added if the respective tag does not yet include a loading attribute. In other words, to prevent an image from being lazy-loaded, it is recommended to specify loading=”eager”.”
As indicated by the WordPress comments, the lazy-loading properties will be actualized in a way that makes it simple to expel them. This is significant if future programs start lazy-loading all pictures by default, without the requirement for a loading attribute.
Google has demonstrated by means of Web.dev that there are plans to naturally empower apathetic stacking to all pictures when a program in the Lite mode (some time ago known as Data Saver mode).
The WordPress team has authoritatively released a WordPress lazy-loading plugin designed for testing purposes. WordPress Developers who need to test it and give feedback are free to download the plugin and check out it.
