Using preload links to declaratively specify which resources the user agent must fetch early to improve page performance.
According to https://caniuse.com/#search=preload preload is supported in Chrome, Opera and Android browser (Firefox has yet to be added)
Early fetch of critical resources example:
<link rel="preload" href="/assets/font.woff2" as="font" type="font/woff2"> <link rel="preload" href="/style/other.css" as="style"> <link rel="preload" href="//example.com/resource" as="fetch" crossorigin> <link rel="preload" href="https://fonts.example.com/font.woff2" as="font" crossorigin type="font/woff2">
For the past 12 years, I’ve been developing applications for the web using mostly PHP. I do this for a living and love what I do as every day there is something new and exciting to learn.
In my spare time, the web development community is a big part of my life. Whether managing online programming groups and blogs or attending a conference, I find keeping involved helps me stay up to date. This is also my chance to give back to the community that helped me get started, a place I am proud to be apart of.
Besides programming I love spending time with friends and family and can often be found together going out catching the latest movie, staying in playing games on the sofa or planning a trip to someplace I’ve never been before.
