The new lazy load by default has caused a lot of problems for my websites. It broke a3 lazy load and created large content layer shifts with that plugin enabled. Even after the developer said he turned off the new default lazy load. That plugin is now unusable which is fine if there is a good alternaitve.

Without a3 lazyload the sites are much slower than previously when using a3 lazyload. I guess the new feature can be turned off but I think other things changed when making the role out. Maybe WordPress core use to define the image width and then height rather than height and then width in the HTML? Not positive but I think so.

Even though I think this made WordPress worse I imagine these changes are here to stay.

Can you make it so we can set an image threshold on the default lazy load? Lazy loading without a threshold makes the images pop out of black space, providing a very poor user experience in my opinion.
