I have been using Ruby's desktop computer, which is slower than the most recent ones (less video memory, I think), and crowded web pages load
I am now using Firefox, but I remember that when I used Opera some years back, I used to be able to check a box which would block displays of pictures. So, I could look at a web-zine page and get the text to read quickly, while only markers would appear for images/pics which didn't really interest me, anyway. (IIRC, Opera would let me click on one of those markers to see the pic if it interested me, but I did not have to wait while everything in a whole catalog of pictures loaded).
Does Firefox have any feature like this? How do I access it?
I'm bumping this to the top, so as to be able to find it easily on the laptop. (I'm writing this from the desktop machine.)
This desktop machine, with standard keyboard, is soooo much easier for me to work. And, I like my regular mouse better than the substitute on the laptop.
By the way, there was a strange browser, years back, that hid all graphics, unless you moused over them. It was designed to hide easily, too, for
people to browse, covertly, whilst at work.
It hides in another window. MSPaint, another browser, Word, &c. for instance.
Probably not what you're after. Just giving-out a little bit of history.
