    Of course, sometimes what you need is most especially the image(s).
    But news & opinion sites seem to think it's neccessary to have a
    pic, often as not some random stock photo with every item. That's
    *before* the matter of ads. Makes a substantial difference on a
    slow connection.

    lynx / elinks / w3m are your friends. Use them. All can be
    configured to download and display images upon user request.

    Haven't looked at lynx for over a decade. Hmmmmm.... Huh. Cranky.
    Have to do something about the hor'ble colors.

    This is what I did:

    $ grep -E -- ^show_color < .lynxrc

    Well, maybe, for some purposes.
