    Default How to disable loading images

    I often connect to Internet via GPRS and I would like to disable loading images to save my traffic. Is there a way to disable pictures in Chrome?

    Sorry, I have found it myself. There's a -disable-images switch. It works

    But it doesn't show alt text, when images are disabled.

    Yes that's one thing i noticed also when playing around with the switches, alt text is not shown with images disabled which isn't good behavior. No doubt this will be corrected in future versions.

    If you are browsing via GRPS you may also want to switch off DNS Prefetching and also the Malware feature because this is very bandwidth intensive. Most PC's have some form malware detection bundled with the Antivirus/Firewall.

    For every browser, there exist Extension AdBlock (also, there exists Adblock Plus) -
    For Chrome - https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...biglidom?hl=en
    (For Firefox - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir.../adblock-plus/ )
    (For Opera - https://addons.opera.com/en/extensio...blockforopera/ )
    After instalation, on the right upper corner (along with address bar) there appears an icon. right click on that >Settings> Edit filter> and add these lines

    *.gif
    *.png
    *.jpg
    *.bmp
    *.swf

    and click Save.
    after this, the images+flash files wont be loaded on sites, but if you want to temporarily enable for specific site, then while you are on that site(page), click the icon and click **Dont run on this page** (or pause). then you can again re-enable.
    Anyway, there exist other several extensions to disable image load :
    **for Firefox** : 1) Image Block; 2) ImgLikeOpera (for image blocking) + FlashBlock (for flash blocking)
    **for Chrome** : 1) HideShowImgs - https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...adolmbdi?hl=en 2) Text Mode - https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...ejiipdnaadiiib
    **for Opera** : Click CTRL+F12>Pages>Images>Dont load, also enable Opera turbo from left bottom corner.
