    I used to have FasterFox installed but never noticed such a good boost. I know the Prefetching is a little controversial (like – I wouldn’t use it at work). However – I’m payin’ good bucks for my Comcast bandwidth at home yet using a tiny %age – and so I feel I should get the best bang for my buck. Preload to my hearts desire!
