How to fix the problem of lazy frame loading in Microsoft Edge

The new Chromium-based browser, Microsoft Edge, shares many features with other Chromium-based browsers such as Google Chrome, Vivaldi, and Opera. Google recently started adding built-in support for lazy loading to Google Chrome (Chrome 76 to be exact), and it looks like Microsoft has added these features to Microsoft Edge as well.

Lazy loading ignores certain elements of a web page that are not visible or important to improve performance, reduce memory usage, and speed up page loading. Chromium implementation – Mozilla plans to integrate Lazy Loading into Firefox as well – focuses on images and iframes. The new Loading attribute can be used to customize images or iframes for “lazy loading” on web pages. WordPress plans to introduce native support for “lazy loading” in future releases.

Lazy loading, also called on-demand loading, is a method of optimizing online content. Instead of loading the entire Web page and rendering it at once, this technique loads and displays the Web page slowly, in chunks. It loads the object when it needs to. As the page scrolls, the content becomes available. More specifically, it is the practice of delaying the initialization of resources until they are actually needed to improve performance and save system resources. Lazy loading has some advantages. For example, it avoids unnecessary code execution.

All versions of the new Microsoft Edge web browser already support lazy loading; the feature is not currently enabled by default, but it can be enabled directly in the browser.

Usually, websites load slowly in the browser. This is because all of the images on this web page are loaded and therefore consume your resources.

Lazy image loading is a new feature in Microsoft Edge that delays loading images that are not yet visible. This means that when you scroll down the Web page, the images won’t load yet until you reach the bottom images.

The new feature is built into the Microsoft Edge browser and doesn’t need to be installed as an add-on. It’s also available in popular browsers like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

Lazy Image Upload delays loading images that are not visible to the user, thereby saving system resources. The web page loads gradually and only when needed. This saves bandwidth, which increases connection speed. Enabling lazy loading also reduces memory and data consumption.


To enable lazy loading of frames in Microsoft Edge

To enable lazy loading of frames in Microsoft Edge

  1. Open Microsoft Edge.
  2. In the address bar, type the following text: edge://flags/#enable-lazy-frame-load.
  3. Select Enabled from the drop-down menu next to the Lazy frame load bar.
  4. Click Restart.
  5. From now on, Edge will try to load frames with the load=”lazy” attribute on demand (see note below).
  6. Instead, you can set the indicator to Enabled (Automatically lazy load where safe…) so that Edge on demand will load frames that do not contain the load=”lazy” attribute.

You’re done. The browser prioritizes user-visible content and postpones the rendering of images and frames that are not visible to the user.

Note: The load=lazy option is a new HTML attribute that was recently added to the HTML standard as a draft. In the future, all major web browsers should support loading lazy elements.


Frequently Asked Questions

Lazy loading is to delay loading related data until you explicitly request it. When using POCO entity types, lazy loading is achieved by creating instances of derived proxy types, then overriding virtual properties to add a loading hook.

The concept of lazy loading is simple: images and frames that are not visible to the user are not loaded until they are. Lazy loading applies by default to all images and frames, but developers can override this feature with a new HTML attribute.
