Govern Image and Ad Display

A picture is worth a thousand words; here’s how to make the most out of web page pictures.

Images are a big fraction of web content. They consume most of your Internet bandwidth and most of the energy your brain devotes to comprehension. There are many tricks you can apply to poke and tweak images to suit your taste. This hack describes a few.
