Amasty Lazy Load Magento 2 Extension

One of the reasons for slowing down a website is the high quantity of images on website pages, which requires a significant amount of server resources to load a page. If you analyze your website in Google PageSpeed Insights and find out that your web pages have a Google Page Speed score lower than 90 points, we recommend you to install a third-party module that provides appropriate page speed optimization tools.
