up.link a[up-instant]
HTML selector

Follows this link on mousedown instead of click.

This will save precious milliseconds that otherwise spent on waiting for the user to release the mouse button. Since an AJAX request will be triggered right way, the interaction will appear faster.

Note that using [up-instant] will prevent a user from canceling a click by moving the mouse away from the link. However, for navigation actions this isn't needed. E.g. popular operation systems switch tabs on mousedown instead of click.

Example

<a href="/users" up-follow up-instant>User list</a>

Accessibility

If the user activates an element using their keyboard, the up:click event will be emitted on click, even if the element has an [up-instant] attribute.
