When a website is confident about predicting what link you might click next, the site can tell Google Chrome to pre-load, or “prerender,” the links, so the page loads instantly when you click it. For example, when you’re browsing a blog, you might click “next post” when you’re done reading. The blog can tell Google Chrome to pre-load the “next post,” so the page shows instantly when you click it.
Adjust the prerendering setting
- Click the spanner icon on the browser toolbar.
- Select Options (Preferences in Mac and Linux) > Under the Hood.
- In the “Privacy” section, use the “Predict network actions to improve page load performance” checkbox to enable or disable the feature.
