Ok, I have a very slow connection where I am
staying for the next week.

Turned off images for Chrome and it helps a lot, at
least I can now load webpages in a reasonable amount of time.
Problem is my pages are now pretty whacked on some
websites......totally too big to fit the screen.

Does anybody has a solution for making Chrome fit in a
normal manner on the screen with images disabled? I have
tried all sorts of tweaks.....turning zoom way down, shrinking
text-size, shrinking all other page data, changing monitor resolution.
Hum, cannot seem to figure this one out.......suggestions very welcome!

And yeah, this is a real crummy connection, so if I re-enable
images, surfing will be close to being unusably-slow.

Thanks for any suggestions!

The “normal” layout of the page was designed including those images.

OK, thanks, but I am doing it out of necessity.

You might need to declutter your computer, disable pluggings, extensions, make more space so the pages load faster. But that's probably not going to work because of your "crummy connection" which is to blame in the first place.
You probably need to fix it first before you do anything else or endure it for a week. Reset the modem, try to fix your WiFi.
How old is your computer and what are your specs?

Thanks for the suggestions.

Unfortunately I am staying in a motel, the cruddy WiFi is kinda
a common thing in the cheap dumps I have been living at.

I really wish Chrome would set-up a click & play browser-mode optimized
for what is quite common, a very slow/spotty internet-connection. No images
really helps with the slow connection, but I now have pretty screwy web-pages coming-up
on my screen.

Have you tried a different browser? You never know which one will handle things differently.

Great idea, I am going to go try and tweak IE.

OK, yeah, IE seems to work much better when images are disabled, compared to Chrome....does not
seem to have the flaky page-sizing issues.


Thanks for the suggestion, should have tried it sooner but have been using Chrome as my go-to browser
for quite a while.
