Quote:
Progressive means that the JPG is downloaded in chunks and after only a little of the image has downloaded it will be displayed full size, but blurry. As more of the file is download the image will rerender with a higher degree of clarity. Without progressive JPGs need to completely download before displaying, leaving a glaring open space on your page. Having something there, even if it is a chunky and blurry version, is a better experience. I always use progressive and it generally doesn’t impact files ize much, but keep an eye on the file size in case.


Bleck! Maybe for navigation images a chunky version might be beneficial, but even on a slow connection those still load rapidly. 99% of the time when I notice a progressive JPG my only reaction is to snarl about the serious of bletcherous low quality versions wasting some of the servers pathetically low bandwidth and making me wait even longer for the only version I want to see to actually load.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
