I was wondering, is there any module to cache the next images when browsing a gallery ?
In general, a user want to browse photo gallery quickly( Facebook like ).
I was thinking of GET the next X pictures, i.e: if we start with the first picture of the gallery, the browser would GET the next X ones ( configurable ) whilst viewing an image. The browser would consequently having these images in his cache.

Any suggestion?

Many thanks

A module could be developed to add meta next and previous tags:
If you prefetch the next image then the image count is incorrect. Prefetching can throw off website statistics as the user doesn't technically visit a given page.
There is other methods I guess as well:
