I’ve always been a Chrome fan, but switched to Firefox three days ago. The reason is that Chrome does not have an image blocking extension yet.
Yes, I’m browsing the web with images and Flash turned off these days. It’s a minimal browsing experience. It cuts the crap and lets you see only what’s important. It gets better when you make use of the Readability extension. The pages load much faster and the dear bandwidth is saved. And if you want to turn on the images for a certain site, the toggle button is only a single click away.
99% of the sites can be viewed without images with no problem. Even Facebook, unless you want to see the occasional photo that someone tags you in.
And talking about Firefox, I’m getting used to it. It’s slow and rickety like an old CTB bus, but then, I love old CTB buses.
