Browsing without loading images can be very useful because while developing some web-scraping automation it can really decrease the data traffic. This counts when using a proxy provider like Bright Data where they are billing based on the data traffic. Fewer images result in less traffic.
Note: Always make sure first that disabling images won't affect the behavior of the website.
How to disable images in the browser
In Kameleo v2.3 we have introduced a solution for automation users where they can provide additional WebDriver capabilities to the browser when it is starting. See the POST /profiles/start endpoint in our documentation.
Basically, you can pass key-value objects as preferences to the request. Simply set profile.password_manager_enabled.images to 2 and profile.managed_default_content_settings.images to 2 as well.
If you need this feature but you are not an automation user, please let us know in a support ticket so we will implement it.
