Video: Prerendering in Chrome

Posted on 14. Jun, 2011 by in Videos

flattr this!

While some of the earlier channels of the Chrome browser have had prerendering for some time, Google is now touting this technology and the fact that it is in the dev channel. Not aware of what prerendering is? Take a look at this video. It’s basically a prediction on what the next user action is in the browser is going to be.

Some of this browser technology is getting whiz-bang fancy. But seriously, what’s your opinion on a browser being able to predict with good accuracy what you are going to do next? Also, how do you think that competing browsers like IE and Firefox are going to be able to continue to compete with things like this being available in Chrome?

    Of course, Google has 100gb/s in their buildings…

    Not trollin’, but most of us wouldn’t have waited a few seconds after typing to click the White House example ;)

    This is great, but I honestly don’t remember the last time I clicked the first link I searched for.

    Question: what are the prerequisites for your page to be prefetched? If this is a phishing or bad site, will Google preload it???

    Test it and let us know. Or don’t if it’s something real bad :)

    Predicting actions means dealing with useless requests. Unless they have 100% accuracy, this is a bad idea just like Instant Search. Please stop wasting, google.

    @Sylvain. Wow. While I can see your concern, I’m surprised at how you feel about the feature, overall, particularly considering Google Instant could easily be my favorite Google (the search engine) feature of all time. I love it how so many times as I’m typing in a search query, Google seems to be reading my mind. I love those kinds of “whiz-bang” experiences, even if I do feel like looking over my shoulders, when it happens.
