    3131In practice that's not as simple. I looked around a bit to find websites that have scripts with `async` but couldn't find any. That's not very surprising as such scripts cannot be used in conjunction with the DOM. The only practical recommendation was to use `async` for truly "asynchronous/background" JS like Web Workers, etc. For comparison there are many sites that have scripts with `defer`.

It would also help to try to find examples of WP sites that currently have scripts with `async` especially when the script have dependencies or is used as a dependency.
