I like the idea of this and I believe this plugin would be a benefit for those who wish to place a LOT of large dimension images on their website.
For my purposes I will remove the plugin and will have to go through code to remove unnecessary and unwanted code.
When I need it, it will be much easier to manually put the code in and utilise the varying sizes WordPress outputs when uploading images.
Browser support for the srcset attribute is still limited – initially I thought it still a great idea to benefit those who use browsers that support srcset.
I regularly place small images/thumbnails that link to lightbox versions. The plugin was placing code onto the 150×150 thumbnails – which is pointless and adds code clutter.
I deactivated the plugin, deciding only to turn it on for inserting large images. Recently I discovered, on opening up the read more divs on my website that all the images within were now displaying at 100% width. This totally broke the layout of the pages and obviously images of 200px wide now looked horrible when displaying many times bigger than actual resolution. I activated the plugin and the images displayed correctly again – but now I am back with unnecessary code being added to thumbnails. The reason I didn’t notice this earlier was all other images inserted, while plugin was activated, beyond the expanding divs were in max-width containers. I believe a recent WordPress or plugin update created this display issue.
If there were a check box added within the Add Media section that would allow the code only to be placed when checked would make me be happy to have the plugin installed and activated.
