How to disable images in chrome as we can do it in Firefox and internet explorer so that save bandwidth ? The answer is you can do this with the latest version of Chrome by going to the content filter , Go to Settings, select "Under the Hood", click on "Content settings" and select "Images".
You have four options:
1. disable all images - select "do not show any images"
2. disable some images - keep the default option, click on "Exceptions" and add some domains/subdomains that should be blocked
3. disable all images, with some exceptions - select "do not show any images", click on "Exceptions" and add some domains/subdomains that should be allowed
4. show all images - the default option/
The command line switch option:
You can disable images in Google Chrome using Master Chrome's Startup Switches / Command Line Options. To use a startup switch, create a new Chrome shortcut on your desktop or elsewhere. Right-click it and choose Properties. In the Target field, add the switch in question immediately following the path to chrome.exe. For example, your target using a -disable-images switch might look like:
"C:\Documents and Settings\bubu\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" -disable-images
After this click on the shortcut & start browsing in Google Chrome. The images will be blocked.
The proper way to use command-line switches is to put one dash ('-') if you're using a single letters (I make this a plural because, in some programs, you can use multiple letters, but they aren't necessarily words), and two dashes ('--') if you're using human-readable words.
(let's pretend we have a ficticious switch called 'd' for enabling Debug mode.)
(now, let's say we wanted to enable debug mode, and disable images.)
chrome.exe -d --disable-images
(now, let's assume Chrome has a mode called "Awesome Mode". Either of the following is valid.)
The problem with this command line switch is in the middle of a browsing session, if you want to disable images youhave to close Chrome and restart with "command-line switch"
