Preloading images is useful: Instead of loading an image when the user request it, we preload them in the background so they are ready to be displayed.
(function($) {
var cache = [];
// Arguments are image paths relative to the current page.
$.preLoadImages = function() {
var args_len = arguments.length;
for (var i = args_len; i--;) {
var cacheImage = document.createElement('img');
cacheImage.src = arguments[i];
cache.push(cacheImage);
}
}
jQuery.preLoadImages("image1.gif", "/path/to/image2.png");
