AbstractA a client web browser receives a first user selection of a link displayed on a web page. The first user selection indicates a preference by the user for deferred display of another web page corresponding to the link. In response to the first user selection, the web browser loads the other web page from a server or other remote repository into a memory device local to the client web browser. Next, the user makes a second selection of the link (after the first user selection). The second user selection indicates a preference by the user for immediate display of this other web page. In response, the web browser fetches and displays this other web page from the local memory. However, if the user selected another link in the originally displayed web page, after the first user selection but before the second user selection and while the other web page is being loaded into the memory device, the web browser would have halted loading of this other web page and instead load and display a third web page corresponding to the other link.
