Internet Speed Tricks

If you’re like most folks, when you log on to the Internet, you’re only interested in three speeds: fast, faster, and fastest. This section explains how to rev up even the slowest connection.

Faster Surfing I

Pictures are often worth a thousand seconds—or more. Many Web sites are full of logos, obnoxious banner ads, and other annoying graphics. You can surf faster by turning off the picture display—a particular boon to dial-uppers.

To tell Internet Explorer not to display graphics, choose Tools Internet Options Advanced. Scroll down to the Multimedia section, and turn off “Show pictures.” An X now appears in place of each graphic you encounter while surfing. If you change your mind and want to display graphics again, simply return to this dialog box, and turn on “Show pictures.”
