Request the implementation of image-free browsing.  All other browsers have this
option in some form.  Mozilla has it under Privacy/Security.  

Justification: Most folks still use dialup connections.  Under those
circumstances, this feature is *sorely* missed (by me at least) when the dialup
connection is slow (<32Kbps).  I regard this as an issue distinct from selective
'image-blocking' (e.g., as discussed in bug 155315); the latter, although nice,
is not a basic essential.

I *really* miss it when the download speed is slow.  For a browser whose
emphasis is on speed, this basic feature should be an option. 

Admittedly this can be enabled in Chimera, by copying over the appropriate
prefs.js line after setting it in Mozilla
['user_pref("network.image.imageBehavior", 2);'].  However, this solution is
pretty non-obvious!

Reproducible: Always

If we had this, we'd need a 'Load images' menu item/toolbar button, and items on
the image context menu.
