Not particularly exciting, but perhaps of some interest to the audiences here:


It's a fairly crude hack, so it will probably fail spectacularly in
some circumstances, but the bottom line is that you can probably do
high-performance, repeated cache timing. The most important trick here
is to abort navigation so that the requested URL never actually gets
requested and cached if not already in cache.
