Upon installation, it will stop preloading user drop down menus. By doing this, rendering of pages will be faster. The main issue is when you have a lot of activity within your network. Each activity has the avatar of the user that created the content, and the avatar contains a lot of elements. With Lazy hover, the menus will be loaded only if you click on them. Test this on different browsers to check how optimized is your website.
