I have a simple question:

Does Fasterfox load PHP pages?

I did read the FAQ here: http://fasterfox.mozdev.org/faq.html and it is
pretty clear that "Fasterfox further limits prefetching such that only files

and .xml are prefetched."

Thanks for the great utility, this is by far and wide one of the better ones
ever. Keep up the good work,
