Is this kind of like turbolinks which Basecamp uses?

Similar in effect, but not in method. Turbolinks fetches pages after a click like normal, but swaps the body tag from the new page into the current page, cutting local render times.

Would it make sense to combine them? Instant turbo links.

Yes, it would make lots of sense. If Turbolinks adds a 'prefetch' mechanism, it will get even faster.

Interesting. So this could be used internally in a web app i guess.
