Description

5 years ago
Currently the behavior is to dump some <img> tags in the preview area and when they show up they show up. This isn't very graceful, and in reality it causes an uncomfortable delay between clicking a link and the perceived page load.

Some options:
- Throbbers
- Placeholder screenshots
- ???
Sorry for asking the obvious but what is an app preview?

Michael said let's use throbbers. This is easy.

STR:

1. Search for 'fire', go to expanded/screenshot toggle.

Expected:

Placeholder images are light gray rocketships, images fade in.

Actual:

Alt text is visible before images are loaded or nothing is visible.
