Google Chrome Link Broken Error

Oops! This link appears to be broken

Sometimes google Chrome throws the DNS Server error message,saying "DNS Error-cannot find server" when we try to open some sites.But using the different browser we can open the site without showing any errror.Google Chrome browser use its own algorithm to read the web pages.When you visit a webpage (like a search results page), Google Chrome will pre-fetch the IP addresses of all websites that are listed on that page. Since the browser has the IP addresses of all the links in advance, DNS pre-fetching ensures that any links that may you click on that webpage will load faster. However, when pre-fetching fails, something that’s not very uncommon, you may get the “link broken” error.

How To Tackle This Error?

The fix is simple – go to Tools > Options (or Preferences on a Mac) > Under the Hood and uncheck the setting that says “Use DNS pre-fetching to improve page load performance.” This might increase the loading time of certain pages by a few microseconds but you won’t at least see that misleading error message.
