Safari: Hide images in RSS feeds Web Browsers
I frequently don't like images showing up in my RSS feeds. To me, RSS is a quick way to read just text. So, I used a custom stylesheet to tell Safari to hide images in RSS feeds (images on web sites will still display normally).

Use a text editor like TextWrangler (free) to make a new file. Paste in the following:
@charset "UTF-8"; .apple-rss-article-body img{display:none};
Save the file somewhere safe as noimg.css (the extension is important) and set Safari to use it as the user stylesheet:

Safari » Preferences » Advanced » Stylesheet:.

Quit and reopen Safari, and take a look at an RSS feed with images. You shouldn't see any.

[crarko adds: I haven't tested this one. I agree that RSS, like email, should be a text only medium.]

While this works, you are still downloading the image content. Not affiliated with them, but Glimmer Blocker is a neat little open source System Preference Pane that blocks images and ads, across the board. Have been using it for sometime now, and it works well. Of course it does other stuff too, and is a great ad blocker period.--- zac
