Verry intrusive
By , for WP 3.9.2

Checked the plugin on several websites with fullscreen features.
None of them was working correctly anymore (if at all)

The plugin description lets assume, that there is just a loading page (together with lazy loading in the Pro version) before the content. But simple testing showed that it is very intrusive.

Pro Version?

Please mention there is a Pro version for Lazy Loading...

can lock down your WP site

nice idea, but something isn't sitting well with the rest of my WordPress installation.

Once activated, I tried to load my normal front at phat-phoenix.de/journal/. I got the darkened screen and a percent count-up alright ... but only to 89%. Then it would fall back to 82% and just hang there.
"OK, I thought, so I can't use it", I thought, and wanted to go uninstall it.
Too bad the hang encompassed _all_ of my WordPress >:-(

I could neither deactivate the checkboxes at the pluggie's settings page to turn it off, nor could I get to /wp-admin/plugins.php to deactivate the plugin entirely.
Major bummer.
After an hour or two I got my normal logon screen back. (If I hadn't I could have removed the folder via FTP later today.)

Bottom line: can't recommend it; too much trouble for too little effect (Lazy loading is indeed a pay feature) *drop*

no lazy load
