This Fasterfox â€œpre-fetchesâ€ is the silent downloading of links in the background, so that if the user were to click on a link it would load much faster. Fasterfox’s prefetching mechanism may be more convenient for viewer, but is a major problem for many low bandwidth webmasters because Fasterfox constantly requests new files, it can cause many servers to overload.
