There was a time when hitting the escape key while a web page was loading, stopped the web page elements from loading further in the browser. If I got the info I wanted from a web page, what is the simplest way to prevent it from loading further?
There are certain sites that load several megabytes of image & video ads. I understand some of these are loaded dynamically through AJAX. Irrespective of whether the content is ads or anything else, is there a way to make the browser stop from loading a page further?
