Description

16 years ago
<link rel="alternate" ...> is used to provide alternate versions (for different
media types, devices, languages, etc.) of the same document.  Currently (Win2K
build 2002100804) the <link> prefetching (bug 12274) prefetches these
alternates.  There is no reason to prefetch multiple versions of the same
document; there is little chance the user will visit these alternate pages, and
it increases server load significantly.
