Description (last modified by jonoaldersonwp)

https://s.w.org/style/js/navigation.min.js is loaded in the footer of all wp.org templates, in a render-blocking manner.

The approach should be altered to:

  • Move the <script> tag into the <head>
  • Add a defer attribute

This will allow the script to be downloaded asynchronously but delay execution until after the page is loaded.
