Is it possible that when a website is opened only text data is displayed i.e no image, advertisement etc. so that it takes lesser time to load the website ?Any browser that supports this?
You can manually disable things from your browser - Instructions below for FF and chrome - I don't use IE, but i can check if its your browser of choice.
You can disable load images automatically (which will prevent images from loading) - this is under options -> content on firefox or privacy -> content on chrome
And switch all mimetypes to 'always ask' - this is under the applications tab on firefox and i believe handlers under chrome
I would add screenshots, but that would somewhat defeat the purpose of this question ;)
Another website: ViewText.org strips away all the ads and gives a text-only version of any website, but retains simple formatting.
Ad-blockers are also available as plug-ins/extensions for Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer. I've only linked to a few popular ones, but others are also available. Opera has a built-in ad-blocking feature.
If you have really limited bandwidth, you might want to consider trying Opera's Turbo mode, whereby a web page is downloaded and rendered on Opera's servers, then an optimized version is sent to your browser. The Kindle Fire's Silk web browser has a feature similar to Opera's Turbo mode.
Many websites have mobile-optimized versions which you can access by replacing www with m or mobile. In addition to being optimized for smaller screens, they are also often optimized for lower-bandwidth connections. For example: m.wikipedia.org.
