We hated it when Yahoo sold Smush to these marketing guys: WPMU DEV (Owned by Incsub of Australia).

They added a new feature that is old as the hills: lazy load. A feeble attempt to differentiate the image compression plugin.

The best Lazy Load plugin has no weight and no cost:

Lazy Load by WP Rocket

That’s right. Same lazy load feature as the WP Rocket paid plugin – for free.

There are various free lazy-loading plugins that add no extra load time to your pages – and also are free.
