#1887: Headlinks

I have never managed to achieve fast enough Internet access (is loading 70 tabs in my browser simultaneously really that unreasonable?)

Today’s invention is a smart program which knows when my browser window takes up less space that the whole of my screen (as it often does when I’m trying to get stuff done on a laptop).

It communicates the current dimension of the browser window and requests that only those images on the server that will actually be visible get downloaded to my machine.

This would give me enough material to assess the top lines of many web pages so that I could avoid loading more content, close their individual tabs and thus free up some bandwidth for more interesting material.
