Turn "Flip Ahead with Page Prediction" On or Off in Modern IE in Windows 8 and 8.1

information   Information
Flip ahead with page prediction browsing is a new feature introduced in modern Internet Explorer that is very similar to a feature called FastForward included in the Opera browser. Flip ahead allows you to explore favorite websites like you would a magazine. When you turn on flip ahead with page prediction, the next webpage is loaded into the background, and you are able to swipe across a touch screen to flip through a news article or an online catalog, regardless of their actual location on the page. Visitors no longer need to click a Next or Forward button to go to the next page.

Flip ahead browsing is not available for the desktop Internet Explorer.
