Anticipate is an open source web browsing tool that finds and prepares for links on-screen so they load much faster when you open them (similar to what mobile/desktop Chrome does when you're browsing in them).

- Customize blacklist/whitelist of link-scanning
- Monitor links being pre-loaded
- QuickSwitch Bubbles (beta): opens up Custom Tabs to start loading a page, then immediately switches back to your previous app, with a bubble to open the loaded page

When a link is found, Ancitipate does the following using Chrome Custom Tabs*:
- DNS pre-resolution of the main domain
- DNS pre-resolution of the most likely sub-resources
- Pre-connection to the destination including HTTPS/TLS negotiation
- Pre-render the page**

*according to the Chrome Custom Tabs documentation
**only on non-metered connections (e.g. WiFi)
