    • How do we enable this feature on our websites? Example: reddit/amazon/google have this feature, and I cannot find the similarities between them. Also, FYI to the bing team, this does not work on bing.com, why?

    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. This is page prediction, which will take you to the next likely page. You’ll most often see this feature on pages that have a next link (e.g. forum sites, long search result lists) If you don’t want this feature turn off the setting in Advanced Settings for Page Prediction. 

      To implement this feature, the web developer must preload the content for the next likely page. You can read more at https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/ie/2013/12/04/getting-to-the-content-you-want-faster-in-ie11/

      Best Wishes,
