Enable network prediction

Enables network prediction in Google Chrome and prevents users from changing this setting.

This controls DNS prefetching, TCP and SSL preconnection and prerendering of web pages.

If you set this preference to 'always', 'never', or 'WiFi only', users cannot change or override this setting in Google Chrome.

If this policy is left not set, network prediction will be enabled but the user will be able to change it.

Supported on: Microsoft Windows XP SP2 or later
