window.onload vs document.onload


  • It is fired when the entire page loads, including its content (images, css, scripts, etc.)
  • $(window).load()


  • It is fired when the DOM is ready which can be prior to images and other external content is loaded
  • In general, document.onload event is fired before the window.onload
  • $(document).ready()
