I get spoiled with the HB. Then I try to read something on line and prancing pony images slow everything down. Funk fonts. Ads. When I try to rig the browser to show nothing it shows some red xs but everything is just as slow.

I want an option to display text as text and everything else as nothing.

       There's usually a way to turn off pictures in the browser and stuff like No Script script blocking program.   

       I'm not that interested in heavy swf file, or those links to google, googleapis, googlesyndication, twitter, facebook etc...

       I find even the Halfbakery to sometimes be too graphics-heavy, so I use the 'low-res' version at http://www.halfbakery.com/lr/ (see link). Every website should have a "/lr" version.

       This is still too high-tech. Pages on the Halfbakery and other websites should be indexed in a catalog from which you can order copies-- text only, on newsprint --delivered to your home.

       Nothing to do with high or low tech [swim], it's about unsolicited junk mail / spam software adverts & plugins using up your PC's memory & processor when you'd prefer they don't.

       Can't tell the difference....
