Thanks guys for all your affirmations.

One more thing I would like to ask is when I set the browsers not to load images automatically and to block pop-up windows with Firefox and not to show pictures with Internet Explorer and so on, would the relevant codes or data or pictures still get downloaded to the local computer?

I also use an add-on flashblock with Firefox. I don't know if the flash still gets downloaded and hole up locally though they are not executed.

I am just trying to minimize the resources used because I have limited data download quota.

Col says there may even be pictures not visible on the screen downloading that will never be displayed on that particular web page. What would they get downloaded then?

If we say web browsers are the resource hogs, what browsers would you guys recommend?
