The question is, does this beastie send the X-moz prefetch header?
The (now defunct) Google Web Accelerator claimed to take this sensible step:
Prefetch requests include an "x-moz: prefetch" HTTP header. Websites can choose to filter out prefetch requests in their server statistics, as well as reject prefetch requests, which would cause the request to be sent only when a user actually clicks on a link.
Does Google no longer allow webmasters to reject prefetch requests?
And if not, why not?
