The documentation page http://documentcloud.github.com/backbone/, is loading a total of 42 images. Of them, 40 are the screen shots of the applications that are using backbone.
Now if I just want to see a piece of documentation during development, I will need to quickly load the page. And at that time, I don't need to load all those images. But every time I load up the page, it eats my bandwidth unnecessarily.
Make the loading of examples optional.
Good morning @greengit! Thanks for pointing this out.
While I agree that there are a great deal of images on the documentation site, they are all cached, resulting in a typical payload that's very small and fast loading. Are you working with caching disabled or in some other similar situation?
For a good example of an image-oriented site that does this, see: http://butdoesitfloat.com/
Fix #1420 - Lazy load example images.
@braddunbar: did you cherry-pick this change over to gh-pages as well?
I have now. :) Had to step out before pushing it earlier.
