I was just curious if there is a web browser for ubuntu that has the option to not show images and other resources like flash and videos for example.

(I do recall being able to play with a browser that uses the terminal to render the html page but do I have options other than that one?)

    And now both Chrome and Firefox have a "click-to-play" option for plug-ins. In other words, things like Flash or Java won't run unless you specifically allow them each time (or always for sites of your choosing). – user25656 Aug 3 '12 at 12:35

I'm not sure if this is entirely what you are after, but lynx is a text only browser for Linux? http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=lynx

I hope that this helps.


Google Chrome (or Chromium), Firefox. If you use Chrome lookee here http://www.linuxandlife.com/2012/03/how-to-block-images-in-chromium-and.html
