Twitter Prefetch Links

By themiddleman Last update Jul 2, 2010 — Installed 222 times.

Script Summary: Prefetches (almost) all links on twitter so they are ready to open before you click them.

This script just finds all the links on the page and except for the set exceptions it will write a <link /> to the page so the browser can prefetch the page.

This also works in chrome but chrome doesnt support prefetch links so you can install:
EDIT: apparently chrome has just added support for this (Aug 2010)

If you are looking to prefetch on another page this script doesnt depend on any twitter specific things, just change the @include and add/remove from the exceptions in the script.

So, does it help? you decide :D
