Prefetch next ImageDuel

After making my selection in an ImageDuel, I invariably look at a spinner for several seconds and the category name of the prior ImageDuel as my computer waits to download the 2 images for the next Duel. It's boring and disengaging.

How about using the time when I'm deciding which image to click to prefetch the next few ImageDuel images so that they're ready when I'm ready? As soon as I've voted, I'd like to move on to the next pairing.

I don't have the fastest ISP, but it's not dreadful, and I don't experience such waits in many other contexts. It would also help to have that category name switch to the next category as soon as I vote rather than have the old category linger there for several seconds.

So, making use of the time that I'm idle to do the background work of downloading the next images would make best use of my time and yours...and get me to render more ImageDuel votes.

Great idea. We've wanted to do this from day one. But it's been a challenge. That said we plan on implementing it next week!
