Home Forums JavaScript Preloading images using jQuery Reply To: Preloading images using jQuery

Some of the advice there, like using inline JS to speed things up would not be something I’d ever consider though. But I’ll definitely be looking at leveraging browser caching myself.

A bit more on topic – preloading images won’t speed up the process itself. it can only take care of not seeing the images ‘build up’ while loading.
