Hummingbird: Defer & Async Options for JS

Are there any plans to add options to inject "async" or "defer" attributes to Javascript files combined and minifed by Hummingbird and called in the HTML?

This would be for achieving higher scores in optimization tests like Google PageSpeed and YSlow as well as any actual speed benefits.

Positioning scripts helps, but but being able to easily and selectively async and defer each script would be a nice feature as well.

    Hello Rone,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your post.

    That sounds like a useful feature. We're constantly developing and improving our Hummingbird plugins so while I'm not able to share any detailed plans with your or provide any ETAs there's a good chance that overtime we'll introduce such or similar tools.

    Since you already posted this in our "Features & Feedback" forum, let's hope that more Members of our Community will support the idea :slight_smile:

    Best regards,

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
