05-26-2021, 02:11 PM
The core concept behind lazy loading is a design pattern mainly used for web templates and architecture. Normally, when a user opens an online store or website, the entire pageís contents are downloaded and rendered in a single go. In this time period, the browser caches the web page. Not only does this result in extra consumption of memory and bandwidth, but it canít ensure that the user will go through the web page.

Itís better to load all of the content when the user accesses a part of the page that requires it. This is possible through Magento Lazy Loading (https://www.cloudways.com/blog/magento-2-lazy-loading/), which creates pages with placeholder content. This is only replaced with actual content when the user needs it.
