Do you find that a lot of the Web pages you visit on your phone are difficult to read because there are so many pictures? While many websites are designed with a focus on how those sites will look on phones, the preferences of users can vary a lot, and some of those users might prefer not to see the images that are on those pages.
If you have often found that your Web browsing experience would be improved if you could remove the pictures from Web pages, then you may want to try out the Firefox browser on your iPhone. Firefox has an option in the browser that will hide all of the images that it detects on a page, leaving you with just the text. Our tutorial below will show you where to find and enable that option.
