Link allows for internal pages to render only changed content super fast rather than full page refreshes. The Gatsby link also pre fetches all of the resources on hover.

The Gatsby link also pre fetches all of the resources on hover.

What about hovering past, not clicking. Wouldn't it be bad, especially for low-bandwidth end-users?
