Hi Matt,

Yes, some webmasters aren't too impressed with the idea of prefetching

For this reason, a whitelist will be added to the next version.  These few
websites may be added to the whitelist.  The beta is available here if you
feel like giving it a try:

Users should be warned that Fasterfox can get them banned from their 
favorite sites, because FF causes their bandwidth costs to skyrocket.

I do not use FF or any other sort of "bot," but I a few sites I visit 
have put up warnings that FF will earn the user an immediate and 
permanent ban.
