I am looking for a way to disable or remove aspects of a page which might too memory intensive. For instance this page when opened in eww readable mode has a gif which hogs a lot of the memory.

Is there a way to disable the gif at the top of the page or even to remove parts of the page?

Thanks so much!

There is indeed!

Add the following to your init.el: (setq shr-image-animate nil).

  • Works splendidly! Thank you! :D
