Hi. Imagine you are doing what I have been doing, which is searching for items in different online sites and compare them and at the same time many youtube tabs open. This draws copious amount of RAM. I wonder if there is a browser extension or even bash code to disable vids , pics, scripts, animations, ... by the user's choice.
I know we can run apps with terminal command options. I wonder if there are those options.

This can be quite useful. in the ancient times ( 2003 ) i had learned that in Internet Explorer (i think 5 or 6 version snail) I used the options and there you go. Now I want to do the same thing using Firefox.

Unused ram is a waste. Linux tries to use all available ram.
Ublock Origin + NoScript addons will block most crap on the net.
