Quicklink for WordPress

Descripción

Quicklink for WordPress attempts to make navigation to subsequent pages load faster. Embedded with the plugin is a javascript library, which detects links in the viewport, waits until the browser is idle and prefetches the URLs for these links. The library also tries to detect, if the user is on a slow connection or on a data plan.

This plugin builds heavily on the amazing work done by Google Chrome Labs.

How it works

  • Detects links within the viewport (using Intersection Observer)
  • Waits until the browser is idle (using requestIdleCallback)
  • Checks if the user isn’t on a slow connection (using navigator.connection.effectiveType) or has data-saver enabled (using navigator.connection.saveData)
  • Prefetches URLs to the links (using <link rel=prefetch> or XHR). Provides some control over the request priority (can switch to fetch() if supported).

Preguntas frecuentes

Will this make my website faster?

Yes and no. This plugin has no impact on the actual performance of your website. But navigating the website will feel faster, because potential navigation targets of the user have been prefetched in the users browser.

Will this make my website slower?

Slowing down the site is highly unlikely, but possible. If this plugin is used with a caching plugin, the additional hits on the server should not impact performance. But if resource intensive, uncached targets are being prefetched, a performance loss is to be expected.

What can I do if my website is getting slower?

You should fist check, that a good caching plugin like «WP Super Cache», «W3 Total Cache» or «WP Rocket» is enabled. If this is not enough you can always add exception rules to the Quicklink configuration by modifying the ‘quicklink_options’ filter.

This plugin is flawless. Only added it on a couple of sites, but my PageSpeed Insights scores are still the same. The plugin is written by reputable coders who know what they are doing. Definitely worth adding, because prefetching page links is all the rage. That's why the Jamstack websites such as Gatsby are so quick to navigate. If you want your WordPress to be as fast then this is the type of plugin you should be adding, once you've done the basics like W3 Total Cache, Smush and the rest...

I use this plugin in combination with WP Rocket and lazyloading. It works perfectly together, no issues or what so ever. But I'm not sure if this plugin is supported by all browsers. It works smoothly on Chrome, but on Firefox I don't seem to notice a difference. Got to test it with other browsers. But overall, good plugin. Recommended.

I was advised by SemRush to use this plugin I thought id try it on an already optimized website. pagespeed went from 1.2sec to 14secs Like WTF, GTmetrix went from 100google 96 yslow to 88google and 76 yslow. Really this pluging is not good and if you are thinking of using this you should check scores before and after activation. For me tho this caused 14sec page load and increased 140kb in page size. Devs if you would like to contact me then feel free. seodevs.com I will welcome you to check the cause so you can improve the Plugin.

Such a great plugin! Literally it will make your website seem like the fastest thing out there to the end user. It comes with a price, of course, you'll end up with a lot of "pages visited" in your webserver logs that the client didn't really visit, they were just preloaded in case the user clicked. But overall it makes your website seem like it's the fastest thing out there, clicking on other links etc on the page and they load straight away (tested for me with Chrome) This is really a great add-on, along with a wp-cache plugin you'll have the fastest site out there by miles.

Thanks for publishing this. Works really well. Would be nice to see option to loading Quicklink from a CDN.
