Why does WordPress pre-load an un-requested page every time it delivers a page?

  • My WordPress site pre-loads an un-requested page before it delivers the requested page. Is this right? Removing this functionality dramatically decreases page load times – by at least 30%.

    Look at any the header of any WordPress page and you see code like <link rel='next' title='xxx' href='http://www.xxx.com/xxx/' /> Look at the page using firefox’s firebug network tools and you’ll see this page is pre-loaded before the requested page is delivered.

    I would really appreciate it if someone could explain why this is. Am I missing something?!
