I'm looking at some methods to browse the web, in situations where bandwidth is scarce (such as, flaky Wi-Fi connection, or mobile phone Internet provider who overcharges the bandwidth).
One thing that would save a lot of bandwidth is not downloading images while browsing. This approach has two main drawbacks
- Sometimes a site's layout depends on images.
- There are some images you wish to see (thus disabling images downloading through Firefox settings is not quite convenient).
I'm therefore looking for a method that would allow me to
- Use some heuristic to find out which images are related to the website layout and allow them to be downloaded.
- Select a particular image from a website, download and display it.
Maybe there's a Firefox extension for that?
