Eddie Osmani, the technical team manager for Google Chrome (Addy Osmani), published the company's plans to introduce an important traffic saving feature in the Chrome 75 browser. This is a dissolved feature. ('lazy loading').
This version of Chrome is due to be published in May. The default technology allows you to download images, iframe frames and other elements of a web page as the user can see the page – only the user can see what you see at this time of writing. Additional content will be added as a user clicks on the page. This provides both download speeds and traffic savings.
One of the places which demonstrates the potential of technology is especially impressive. On a page with plenty of photos, 10 MB (10,000 KB) was downloaded when loaded in the default mode, and just 250 KB with an active “lazy” mode. Being easy to understand, this not only reduces the browser experience, but can also cause serious budget damage, unless traffic is endless. Indeed, this example is very heavy, but it shows that traffic savings can be up to 98%.
Originally the technology was for portable devices, but now they are going to be made available to platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, Chrome OS, Android and Android WebView with a different version of Chrome. The technology is currently available in the Chrome Canary experimental building.
