Blocking Images

If popups are the number one annoyance, banner ads can’t be far behind. Banner ads are the long thin graphic images that are frequently displayed at the top or bottom of web pages, offering any of a zillion different services you probably don’t want or need. They’re billboards on the information superhighway, and they’re about as culturally devoid as real billboards, too.

You can block images from appearing on web pages fairly easily. From the Web Features Options screen (shown earlier in Figure 3-1), uncheck Load Images, and click OK. From now on, all images are suppressed. As an example, take a look at the mozilla.org main page, displayed in Figure 3-4. Graphics appear in the title bar and throughout the page.
