[Chrome] Save Bandwidth by Viewing Websites Only in Text Only Mode

Websites usually try following best web design practices, for better speed when it comes to loading up of pages. I know a few friends who do struggle at times because of slower connections. Quite often web-pages have ads and other design elements which does add to the bandwidth being used. In such cases it would be a good idea to use Text Only extension on your Chrome browser.

Features of Text Only

  • The text only extension can be used with any web-page. In text only mode, the page shows up without any ads and other clutter which is often used to make websites look impressive.
  • The extension uses viewtext.org for turning the page into text-only.


So next time you think you have to keep an eye on the bandwidth you are using but still need to surf the internet, try using text only extension.

Also if you liked extension you might also like looking up Plain Clothes extension, which also does achieve similar results.

Do drop in your comments.
