As we open any website on Chrome or Firefox, it is common that the images are automatically loaded on a web-page. There are few websites where images require a mouse click to open. But most of the websites automatically load the images and opens on the screen. While in office or colleges or any meetings, when you are presenting something from the website, the images can distract their thoughts and you can face a bad experience.
Now I will show you how to disable or the way to disable auto-loading of images in the chrome and firefox browser. There are two ways to disable auto-loading the images either you can manually through settings option or by disabling the extensions or plugins from the browser.
