true. but opera mini, by being a proxy, allows for single color squares to be 
inserted where images ones was, so that one get the general idea of where 
things are. also, it allows for those images to be downloaded and viewed or 
saved if the user so wants.

in microb, turning of images collapse the area taken up by many of these 
images. and while one in theory could bring up a menu by long-tap on them, 
finding  1x1 pixel location and long-tap on it is practically impossible.

i recall making a feature request in bugzilla about it was told it was against 
the html standard to do anything...
