How to Enable or Disable Prerendering in Google Chrome Browser

information   Information
When a website is confident about predicting what link you might click next, the site can tell Google Chrome to pre-load, or "prerender," the links, so the page loads instantly when you click it. For example, when you’re browsing a blog, you might click “next post” when you’re done reading. The blog can tell Google Chrome to pre-load the “next post,” so the page shows instantly when you click it.

When you're typing a web address in the omnibox (address bar and search bar combined), if Chrome has high confidence with which site you're likely to visit based on your local history, Chrome will begin to prerender that page. This will make the page show up faster when you hit enter.

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable prerendering website links in Chrome.



Here's How:

1. In Chrome, click/tap on the Chrome menu Name:  Chrome_Menu.png
Views: 594
Size:  1,010 Bytes button, and click/tap on Settings. (see screenshot below)
