Preconnect

Preconnect allows the browser to set up early connections before an HTTP request, eliminating round-trip latency and saving time for users.

A few examples of things you might want to utilize this for is to include your CDN URL or Google Fonts or any essential domain name for tracking script.

 <link rel="preconnect" href="https://cdn.domain.com">
 <link rel="preconnect" href="https://fonts.googleapis.com">
