Credits to ZDNet for finding this one. It allows Chrome to load pages from its cache whenever you click on the forward or back buttons in your browser. This should help the page load even faster, and all you have to do is enable this little flag in your browser: chrome://flags/#back-forward-cache

For this to work, you have to have the latest update for chrome which is chrome 79.x.x.x. To check which version of chrome you are on, click the triple-dot icon in the upper-right corner of your desktop browser, click on Help, click on “About Google Chrome,” and summon that update for your system. (Go ahead and update your Android or iOS apps, too.)
