What exactly the 'defer' is?
I have heard two things about it:
1. The JS function with 'defer' is called at the end, after completion of the whole document (page).
2. Browser doesn't wait for completion of JS function with 'defer'. It continues the execution of rest of the things. Not clear, how it happens? (threading???)
Please clear my doubt.
