📰Microtask Queue + RxJS + Angular

📰The Art of Delaying Image Content

In his post, Alejandro Cuba Ruiz summarizes how the HTML img, picture and source tags have evolved during the years, then shows us how to use the standalone NgOptimizedImage directive to serve the appropriate sized image from a CDN and how to enable lazy loading of an image with the help of the new @defer block.
