    Lightbulb external preloading

    Hi,

    I have the index page of my site which is a frameset.

    I wonder if I preload images needed in each frame section, will those images be available in the different linked pages ??

    Thanks in advance.

    The simple answer is yes. Once a file is loaded by your browser it is then in your machine's cache and will load much faster the next time you reference it, even from a different page.

    Yes,

    The simple answer is yes...

    the more complicated answer would be to make sure you're not pre-loading a TON of images, or a few very large images.

    If your site takes too long to load, it'll turn people off immediately, and they'll leave.

    Make sure you're only pre-loading the necessary images - and try to keep them on the small side (IE - Little images, like buttons that link to other pages)
