The Link component wraps the react-router-dom Link component, but adds intelligent prefetching behavior to speed up performance. Our Link component binds to an IntersectionObserver to prefetch the target page's type (such as product-page), only when the link is visible in the viewport. And when possible, our Link loads the page information from local cache. And when possible, our Link loads the page from local cache to prevent unnecessary roundtrips to the server. In short, the Link component builds in all the best-practices that Google recommends when prefetching content for fast transitions.
