Website performance improvements
In Elementor Pro v2.7 the Pro Gallery widget was introduced. They have now improved the loading time of the Gallery and added two important functions: Slow loading and random ordering of images.
To improve site performance and speed up image loading, the Elementor Gallery widget now includes slow loading by default. We also optimized the code that loads images and improved image transitions.
In addition to Lazy Load, you can now choose between standard and random image order. Choose ‘Random’, and the images will be shuffled, in one and several galleries and in layouts.
Font Awesome 5 Pro
Do you know how everyone uses the same icons? With this version, you can create unique pages with icons that are sure to make your sites stand out.
A few months ago, in version 2.6, Elementor upgraded its icon library to Font Awesome 5. Font Awesome 5 is the largest and most popular icon library. It’s a bit like Elementor and wine, it keeps getting better over time.
The new version adds a lot of value to Font Awesome Pro subscribers. Now, these users have the ability to use more than 300 new icons, more than 1700 duotone icons, which are composed of 2 different tones (adds an original look and feel to the icons ).
