Preload monitors applications that users run, and by analyzing this data, predicts what applications users might run, and fetches those binaries and their dependencies into memory for faster startup times.

Note that installing preload will not make your system boot faster and that preload is a daemon that runs with root priviledges.

Loads right into cache, no ram footprint, awesome for those commonly used yet heavy load applications like chrome/FF

This is a smart program that will load the applications you use the most and the resources you are most likely to use in the near future into your RAM so that it doesn't have to be read from the hard drive when you need it.
