You can see it in the demo page in the first post or in youtube (scroll until the end to see the effect ) http://www.youtube.com/results?search_q ... edits&aq=3
For us, the gap between the load and the show can be unnoticeable with this viewtopic.php?f=75&t=32898#p208308
In my case, in some communities, to see a topic of 100K my browser have to download 2.500K (avatars, signatures, posted images) in images... a lot of images that I don't need, I don't want and I never see.
With the load on demand thing, the browser only download the images you really need, making the browsing more efficient and fast.
The comsuption of bandwidth is more accurate, which benefit users, communities(cutting costs) and hosting companies.
