Have you ever noticed that home pages are slow to load? Sliders could be to blame. Many modern homepages use a slider or carousel design element to show several rotating images that provide different offers or present various aspects of the brand. A common choice for implementing these sliders is JQuery. While JQuery itself is not a performance killer, the large images displayed by the slider can be responsible for slowing down a home page’s load time.
