When we added skeletons to our site the management complained that it's broken, makes everything slow, and they want white screen instead... :broken-heart:

Ha! Did they want the page load 'naturally' or just a blank screen? A loading spinner would be another option.

Another smart trick is to only load the 'above the fold' part directly and show the rest when it's finished. Checkout how these guys do it, the top part almost loads instantly and the rest comes later: coolblue.nl/

Just blank, they hate all sorts of loaders, spinners, etc.
