Owner(s):leviw Score:

Gather data on number of third party iframes loaded but never viewed.

Collect metrics and do analysis on forced layouts.

Owner(s):cbiesinger Score:

Stretch: Reduce number of forced layouts for one common trigger.

Owner(s):cbiesinger Score:

Common triggers include: - I'm an iframe and need to know my size (clientHeight/width) - I'm an iframe or component and need to know if i'm visible. (scrollTop, etc) - I want to lazyload images or components when the user gets closer (scrollTop) - I'm a metrics script and need to report the window size (window.clientWidth, etc) - I need to set my dimensions based on the computed width/height of something else. (clientHeight/Width) - Need to set focus(), because new component is active. (elem.focus()) - I'm jQuery or Modernizr and use computed style to identify features or bugs.
