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.
