Lazy-loading images in 5.5

In WordPress 5.5, images will be lazy-loaded by default, using the native HTML loading attribute which became a web standard earlier in 2020. This will drastically save bandwidth on both servers as well as user agents across sites where images further down the page used to be loaded right away, even in the case the user might never scroll towards them.

By default, WordPress will add loading=”lazy” to all img tags that have width and height attributes present. Technically this is handled on page output, similar to how responsive images are facilitated in WordPress by adding srcset and sizes attributes.
