Instant Loading in WordPress Lighthouse Plugin

If you’ve read my thoughts on instant page loading in WordPress, and are wondering which solution to go with, note that Instant Loading has been implemented in WordPress Lightouse plugin 3.3.

You no longer need other plugins or external scripts, so make sure you clean up your WordPress site and update your Lighthouse plugin to version 3.3 or higher.

When a user hovers over a link, a prerender and/or prefetch hints are dynamically appended to the <head> of the document, but only if those respective hints haven’t already been generated in the past. This will speed up subsequent page loading. It might not be noticeable short-term, but it will definitely have an impact on your conversions and bounce rate long term.
