Google New Results Prefetching Feature

Google added a new controversial search feature for Firefox and Mozilla users (Sorry, I.E. and other browser users this feature is not supported yet in your browser). It allows your browser to start downloading the top search results before you click on it. This feature allows your destination pages to load faster than before.

There is some debate about the PROs and CONs of this feature. Some people like it, and others worry about what your browser could be downloading without your knowledge.
