Bare-Bones Browsing
To improve browsing performance in Internet Explorer 3.0, you can prevent pictures, sounds, videos and other multimedia files from appearing or being played automatically when you access Web pages. To do so, select View/Options and then the General tab. Click on one or more of the following check boxes in the Multimedia area to clear them: Show Pictures, Play Sounds and Play Videos.

Next, click on the Security tab and clear the following check boxes: Allow downloading of active content, Enable ActiveX controls and plug-ins, Run ActiveX scripts and Enable Java programs. Now click on OK.

Each of these items create system load, so uncheck whatever you feel you can do without to get to the content quicker.
