Browsing without images - by default?

  • Is there a preference to browse without displaying (non cached) images, by default? Right now all I can see is that after a page has loaded we can disable images. Still fine, but by then we already loaded a bunch of them...

  • Thank you. It is something to consider, but unfortunately it is not exactly what I wanted.

    (I keep forgetting about those chrome:// options, I wish it all gets into vivaldi://settings/)

    As much as I tested, if I disable images on chrome://settings/content they are irrevocably disabled. The setting of Vivaldi images options, on the status bar, becomes irrelevant. We get no images, always.

    The available setting, on the status bar Image settings, are, to show images, to not show images, to show cached images. The default for new tabs is to show images. I was asking if there is a way to change tat default to, say, show cached images.

    (and we should have a similar feature for videos…? I guess I'll post on feature requests πŸ™‚

  • Similar (same?) request was submitted ~2 years ago, and unfortunately this handy feature isn't yet implemented in 1.7.735.46 😞

    @AntonK The developer team is not as large as Microsoft and they have other priorities.

    Yes, we all have our pet features which would be a nice-to-have in browser. And have to wait until the browser gets older... 😴 and the we wake up and the browser has it. πŸ˜‰
