As a web developer, I never liked the idea of prefetching, but I just can’t imagine Google making such a stupid mistake — even on a beta version, knowing it’ll be immediately linked by thousands of bloggers all over the world. Google, for crying out loud, the makers of Gmail! They should know about web applications!
According to some, Google would even be caching, on its universal proxy, your private pages, those you access with personal cookies — giving access to them to anyone browsing the same site after you. But now that’s so unthinkable I just prefer to assume those guys have a very broken system.
Anyway, if they haven’t pulled the plug on this by Monday, Google’s popularity (and, more importantly, trust) rating will have to be seriously reconsidered. Well, it won’t have to — it will be, instantly.
P.S.: GWA is the new net SUV.
