Google is developing a new feature in its Chrome browser that it hopes will give users a new speed increase while browsing the web. The new feature highlighted on the Chrome Issue tracker website says that Chrome is being designed to pre-load pages in the back ground to get the increase in browsing speeds.
The new feature was only been discussed briefly and will incorporate Cromes tabbed browsing interface allowing it to load multiple pages in to sperate memory compartments simultaneously.
The main issue facing the team developing the feature is how to teach Chrome which parts of the pages and even which pages to pre-load.Other issues also include false page-view statistics that might be created by pre-loading a page that may never get viewed.
As a Chrome user the feature does sound extremely interesting and anything that increasing the browsing speed of the web has got to be a good thing as long as it loads the correct pages and doesn’t fill my cache with irrelevant information.
