Enhanced Browser Experience: Prerendering the page in Chrome

In the future release of Chrome you will be able to pre-render the page before it is displayed.

Prerendering a page is when you tell the browser ahead of time what page the user is most likely to visit next and the browser will pre-load and pre-render the page in the background. This would be useful in articles that consist of multiple pages where user is very likely to click to the second page of the article. The second page will just pop open instantly because its already completely rendered.

This is accomplished by adding a special link tag with rel=prerender and a url that tells the browser what page to prerender. Currently it is a experimental feature in Chrome 13.

Here is more information from Google labs.
