Hobo 2.0.0.pre7 added support for the turbolinks gem

Turbolinks adds a capability similar to the Hobo push-state option without requiring any modifications to your views. So just by adding the turbolinks gem, you can get a substantial speedup for “free”.

There are some drawbacks. For instance, if your stylesheet & javascript assets are different on two different pages, turbolinks ends up loading your page twice.

I recommend checking out turbolinks. Most of you will want to add it to your application.
