Increase Your Browsing Speed

Most of the time you spend on the Internet, you probably welcome the addition of graphic elements, such as digital photographs. However, if your Internet connection is bogged down and your browsing speed is frustratingly sluggish, you can speed things up considerably (even if it's only temporarily) by eliminating pictures from your view. To do this, follow these steps:

Internet Explorer 5 or later:
 1. Go to 'Tools->Internet Options'
 2. Click on the 'Advanced' tab
 3. Scroll down the 'Settings' window until you see 'Multimedia'
 4. Remove the check from the 'Show Pictures' check box.
 5. Click 'Apply' then click OK to close the dialog box.
Netscape Navigator 4 or later:
  1. Go to 'Edit->Preferences'
  2. Click on 'Advanced' in the 'Category' panel.
  3. Remove the check mark from the 'Automatically Load Images' option
  4. Click OK to close the dialog box.

Now when you open the next web page, it will load much faster but without any pictures. If you want to replace the pictures in your browser, simply replace the check mark in the settings.
