…without making it look weird or/and hard to read.

Quickly achieved lazy-loading

Lazy loading is one of those easy wins, that will please Google PageSpeed score. It’s also a nice gesture for all your readers, that are using a poor or metered connection.

Second week and I’m still doing it, yay me!

Little snippets #1: CSS only mobile menu
