lazyloading attributes coming to Chrome

Post by TomHTML » Tue May 28, 2019 1:48 am

Starting in Chrome 75 (and currently available in Chrome Canary under a flag), the browser will handle lazyloading of images and iframes, with "lazy", "eager", and "auto" values for a "loading" attribute. Whatwg seems on track to standardize it, so it looks like yet another thing to validate.

Human readable article on the new feature by a Googler: https://addyosmani.com/blog/lazy-loading/

Whatwg tech work on it: https://github.com/whatwg/html/pull/3752/files

Thanks! I'll add support for the "loading" attribute in the next CSS HTML Validator update.

UPDATE: Added (for next update)!
