Lazy loading below the fold

I’ve started experimenting with my home page to make it load even faster.

Amazon famously does this too which you can read more about in this Steve Souders post. They make sure everything that needs to be visible above the fold is loaded first, then, it starts loading all the other “stuff” below the fold.

This kind of optimisation has become increasingly popular; I’ve been seeing it on more and more sites lately.
