Browsing Without Images

If you ever find yourself browsing over a slow connection, and you want to get to information quickly, try turning off images in Safari. Go to Safari Preferences, Appearance, and then uncheck “Display images when the page opens.”
Unfortunately, there is no way to then ask Safari to load the images. But you can leave the Appearance preferences window open, and then check the box and reload the page if you want to see the images. Or, Control+click on a specific image and open it in a new tab or window.
