[Hummingbird Pro] Looking for Popup & Form Plugins that play well with Defer or Async loading

I am optimizing sites for speed and the same issue keeps coming up, which is that I cannot get the best speed out of my site without sacrificing things like popups and forms. I typically use Gravity Forms and Thrive Leads for these things.

My question is … will Forminator and Hustle work if I defer or async jQuery?

Gravity Forms requires jQuery to load before it does and Thrive must do the same because they both break if when I try to defer jQuery.

If Forminator and Hustle won’t work without loading jQuery in the header then do you recommend another solution or other plugins?
