Dubbed Lazy Loading, the feature has been spotted on Google Chrome s developmental Canary channel.
In the simplest of terms, Lazy Loading is a technique that allows the web browser (in this case, Google Chrome) to load only those webpage elements that are currently visible on the display. The rest of the elements are loaded as the user scrolls up/down. This results in an overall faster browsing experience, since the browser doesn t have to load and cache the entire webpage in one go.
