"It little profits that an idle king, By this still hearth, among these barren crags, Match'd with an ag├Ęd wife, I mete and dole Unequal laws unto a savage race, That hoard, and sleep, and feed, and know not me."

Double up!

I just installed the new Google Web Accelerator, a tool that prefetches links from web pages, so that when you click on the link, it loads instantly.

That sounds like any other prefetching tool. However, the advantage here is that Google delves into its own cache of the web. (A popular rumour is that Google maintains an almost perfect mirror of the web, that even if the WWW were to crash, Google could single-handedly resurrect it!)

The only catch is that its effect can be felt only on a broadband connection.
