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 Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
If we had this, we'd need a 'Load images' menu item/toolbar button, and items on the image context menu.
