Overview

Speed up navigations by automatically prefetching in-viewport links ⚡

Quicklink Chrome Extension lets you navigate the web faster by prefetching any link that comes into the view. When clicking on them, pages are retrieved from the browser cache, instead of the network, highly improving navigation speed. Functionality: The extension injects and initializes Quicklink library in every site a user visits: https://github.com/GoogleChromeLabs/quicklink. Once initialized, the library starts prefetching any links that come into the view. It will prefetch at most 5 in-viewport links. By default, the extension ignores URLs patterns that shouldn't be prefetched. For example, URLs containing "signup", "signin", "logout:, etc. To add more patterns to ignore: 1. Click on the extension icon. 2. Pick "Options" on the drop-down menu. The settings screen lets you add additional URL patterns to ignore and to opt-out from Analytics.

Awesome job. However i did end up running into site issues eventually. This likely something that can only be minimized given the nature of the extension. Been using this off/on for over a year and it's best used in addition with Extensity, another add-on that seamlessly allows the user to enable/disable chrome add-ons. So when you use QuickLinks and a page loads incorrectly, quickly disable it and reload the page. Problem solved.

Great extension for users who browse using the keyboard and a vim extension for chrome.

Breaks webpages by sending too many requests in too short time. Triggers captchas, delays, and logouts. Great idea, but bad implementation makes it worse than not using the extension.

Thanks for the feedback Klemen. We've just uploaded a new version (1.3), which adds more exceptions for URL patterns and limits the items to prefetch to a maximum of 5. Hope this helps.
