New Native Lazy Loading Attribute for HTML img and iframe tags

Lazy loading your images just got a whole lot easier. If you’re not familiar, lazy-loading is the practice of delaying the load of certain content on a page until a user scrolls near it. If a user never scrolls, the content never loads. Page speed performance, mobile… good for all that. Currently, you’ll need JavaScript to do this. But, as of Chrome 75, that’s no longer necessary. A new attribute for <img> and <iframe> tags, loading” will be supported. Supported parameters are: lazy: good candidate for lazy loading. eager: not a good candidate for lazy loading.

Building a responsive grid with CSS Grid

Forget responsive web design. Just use HTML tables

Well then… My message, yesterday, sparked this doozy from PJ: “If you just stuck to tables this entire time, imagine the years of frustration you could have avoided by ignoring floated divs, Bootstrap, flexbox and now CSS Grid! These ‘new’ methods add no additional benefit to the client or user, and the syntax is not any better either! I use floated divs and flexbox only because I was gullible enough to drink the koolaid. But if I had used tables all this time, really nobody would have noticed, and I would have been more productive.” Bahahahahaha! Wait. No. Don’t do

The One-Line Difference Between Ugly and Amazing Websites

Forget personal taste. I’m telling you as sure as I’m sitting here… whatever your personal thoughts about the differences between this before and after… one will get you, “Um well… something just feels off.” And, the other: “Wow!
