  author={Wei Zhang and David B. Lewanda and Christopher D. Janneck and Brian D. Davison},
This paper presents the design and implementation of a Web prefetching module in Mozilla, an open-source and cross-platform browser. We have incorporated two kinds of predictors: a historybased predictor and a content-based predictor. These two predictors can analyze a user’s behavior and the contents of recent HTML pages to predict likely next links; thus, they provide personalized predictions which are then utilized to determine which resources should be prefetched.
