Turbo 8 has been released! One of the core new features - hover-click preload acceleration (ala InstantClick).

InstantClick makes an assumption about potential user behaviour: now whenever you hover on a link, it will fire a GET request to retrieve that page. So when you actually click on the link, it will load faster.

Remarkable how effective it is for perceived performance. It can save hundreds of ms saved in many cases!
