Rapid transition of images on the line. How does it work?



  • When I'm looking at the photos on the line, they're looking, you know, moment (i mean, I threw the next one, and now it's open, no delays). The browser clearly uploaded the new page plus changed the address.

    At first, I thought ajax was just going down a little bit, and they're leaving, but no. The address is changing, the page is downloaded. How does this happen so fast?

    I looked into the code, there's little I understand. Anyway, I saw ajax.post. Okay, ajax, but the page's loaded, the address's changing. Ajax can't do that. I don't understand.

    Who knows, please explain.



    1. "Momentally" is what you think... Rather, it's a pre-emptive (upstream) download of images.
    2. Loading goes AJAX
    3. There's no turning on pages-- it's History API or anchor, depending on the browser.
