Tech updates: maybe lazy...

2019-08-09: Neither lazy nor cheap yet, or am I?

At the moment I can't make lazy loading work in mainline or Canary Chrome on my laptop at all, so a step back from where I was in July.

(Test page.)

It doesn't seem that work has stopped on Chromium component:Blink>Loader>LazyLoad, Merely that a step back has been taken to gather stats from the field from 'lite' mode mobile (Android) only.

Update 2019-08-14: while complaining to various people at Google how lazyload had stopped working for me, I pulled the very latest mainline Chrome and it does now seem to have a full working implementation as of 76.0.3809.100. Woot!
