SnoozeSquad.js - Finally a decent lazy image loader
It's been on my todo list for positively ages, but I've finally gotten around to replacing the existing lazy image loading on this website (not on the blog yet, sorry!) with a new one of my own devising.
Lazy image loading is a technique in which you only load images no a given webpage if they are near the user's field of view. This saves bandwidth by preventing images that are never seen from being downloaded.
Since I've been unable to find a good, solid, reliable lazy image loading script on the web, I thought it best to post about it here so that you can use it too.
