A screencast that shows image flickering in Safari on iOS 11 b4.

Replacing the `src` attribute of an `<img>` via JavaScript results in flickering.

HTML/JS demo here: 

# Steps to Reproduce:

1) Replace an image with another image by changing the `src` attribute of an `<img>` via JavaScript.

    For example: 
    image.setAttribute("src", "bastille-large.jpg");

# Actual Results:

The old image is visually removed for a split second, resulting in flickering.
This only seems to happen when loading an image that has not been displayed before.

# Expected Results:

The new image should appear instantly as soon as it’s been downloaded, without the old image disappearing. This was the case in iOS <=10.

# Software Version:

This occurs on iOS 11 beta 4; in Safari and also in my app’s WKWebView.

# Additional Information:

I use this library to lazy-load high-resolution versions of images in my app. 
It shows the low-resolution images in `src` by default and lazy-loads the high-resolution versions from a `data-src` attribute.
