    Base on my own testing experiencing the form source code is the fastest since most of the things that needed to load are in your form source folder unlike if you are using the embed code most of them needs to load through the server side.

    Which is most compatible with devices? Jotform is already optimize for mobile view but you can always tweak your form's display by adjusting or adding a custom CSS on your form. Here's a guide on how to inject a custom CSS http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    hi @chatterGear ,

    the EMBED form can perform better then others but you may use all of those style.

    I have done some testing and jotform pop up seems to load instantly and never fail...Surely this is the fastest?

    As my colleague suggests, I too agree that the Source Code is the fastest and most streamlined option to load a form on your page. It avoids calling a secondary server to retrieve elements to load on your page. Mind you this comes at a price, as you do need to update the soruce code on your webpage, everytime you make layout changes to your form on the Form Builder. I would suggest this option if you know you have a fast server hosting your website, and your form has a lot of content.

    Generally, iFrame Code, PopUp Code, and the Standard Script Embed Code, may also yield great results. As long as your form is not content heavy. If you keep your form light you will surely experience great results with any embed option.

    Out of the last three options, we generally recommend using the iFrame code. It's most compatible throughout a wide range of devices. And it is immune to script conflicts with other elements on your page.

    Thank you.
