Sometimes images just load too damned fast.

With all this internet going around, sometimes you just want to experience the thrill of a long page load. Give your users the chance to enjoy a little slice of the future by slow loading your website's images with ComcastifyJS!

Just a side note: We're hiring devs!

Lets slow things down!

  1. Include comcastify.js on your page or use the latest version from our CDN:
    <script src=""></script>
  2. Prepare the images on your page on document ready (so images don't show up before the box):
  3. Initialize comcastify on window load, something like this (so image sizes are properly calculated):
    window.onload = comcastifyjs.fixMyImagesLoadingSoFast({
      boxColor: '#123456',
      loadMaxPercent: 0.75,
      loadSpeed: 100,
      loadIncrement: 5
  4. Switch up parameters to change your experience:
    • elements list of DOM elements to limit comcastification to.
    • boxColor Hex color for the box placed over images.
    • loadMaxPercent Max percentage of image to load.
    • loadSpeed Speed to load your images to their max in ms.
    • randLoadIncrement Set to true to make load increment random, loadIncrement ignored in this case.
    • loadIncrement Number of pixels to load each time the loadSpeed timer ticks.
    • randomPause Probability of skipping a pass each time the loadSpeed timer ticks.

See it in action!

Enjoy the slowness of the load! (hint: you might want to reload the page)

Here's the code running this thing:

$(document).ready(function () {

$(window).load(function () {
    loadMaxPercent: 0.75,
    loadSpeed: 1000,
    loadIncrement: 5,
    boxColor: '#ece4d8'

That's it!

Now grab a coffee and enjoy the load times!
