Turn off images.

There are some compression sotware that compresses the data and imag files and brngs it upon the browser...
That is if the file is 1024 kb,it compresses it to 32 kb...so it saves bandwidth.....
Even if the images are on....we can get the saved bandwidth...
i want that software..Does anyone know abt it?????

In that case that particular software would have to reside on some other server, and not on your PC. So it wouldnt be of any use to you. Thats what I feel.

This discussion is ridiculous, i.e. no one should think about compressing images to save andwidth!!! That's why unlimited packages need to be become the norm, and the more people shift to unlimited packages like those of Airtel, the more other ISPs would be forced to offer unlimited packages or quit.
