Hmm, Google now requests Prefetching.

What this means is that if you have Firefox or Mozilla without the prefetch feature turned off then it will start to download the top result from a search as soon as it gets the search results (this is indicated in the HTML by a rel="prefetch" attribute in the anchor</a>).
