Quicklink is an interesting project by Google Chrome Labs aiming to decrease subsequent page loading time on your website.
The project has now been made easier to implement on WordPress websites with a plugin – Quicklink for WordPress.
The plugin available to download from the official WordPress repository is made possible by contributors including wpmunich, Hendrik Luehrsen and Weston Ruter, in addition to the Google Chrome Labs.
The plugin builds on the work done by Google Chrome Labs and adapts it to make it easier to implement for WordPress websites.

Decreasing page loading time is one of the most important aspects of improving website performance and efficiency. Page loading time has become an important factor that affects user experience and other aspects, such as SEO.

Your Review of the Quicklink Plugin
I wrote this quick post as I find the idea behind this plugin really interesting. I always look out for ideas to decrease page load times as it can drastically improve the overall user experience.
One important thing I want to mention as you start exploring this plugin – it doesn’t replace the need for caching plugins such as WP-Rocket or WP Super Cache in case you’re using them.
The Quicklink plugin rather enhances performance when used in combination with those cache plugins that you’re using already.
Feel free to try the plugin, and let me know if you find anything interesting in the comments below.
