Yeah totally! I'm disappointed that so many features we expect from a modern web experience, like lazy loading, require JavaScript. I was hoping this would spur some discussion about some rethinking of HTML that might alleviate that.

For example, wouldn't it be amazing if such a thing as <img src="..." lazy="500px"> were possible such that the browser would load the image if its bounds were visible in the viewport or within 500px of the scroll position?

 

I cannot find where it is written, I might have saw it in one of their video: the Chrome team is working (I think it was a talk with Addy Osmani in which I heard this, correct me if I am wrong) is actually working/thinking of a lazy="true" attribute on img video and audio to help make this a de facto feature on the web. So maybe they heard your request πŸ˜‰

It's changed a little since then but yes there is a built in lazyload in the pipeline πŸ˜€

load="lazy|eager|auto"
