Link preloading on focus/hover plays a pretty big part in the speed feeling as well

If you're curious, you can check your network tab for requests when you hover/focus any link on the site.

Instant Click docs from docs.forem.com are not extensive but they can get you started on how Forem does it 🌞

Speed and great UX have always been two of the main factors making the website appealing to me 😉 Great to see they are distributing Forem, that is heavily oriented towards that 👍
