Lately I've been learning/playing with userscript (shortening URLs, modified grue's merit script) so here's my latest addition.

This userscript uses rsz.io as a proxy for images instead of the native ip.bitcointalk.org which can take several seconds to load and has some limitations.
Additionally, big images are reduced to improve readability of threads. By default the max width is 600px and the max height is 400px, but that can be easily modified on the script.
When hovering the reduced image the full version will be shown.

Reduced images load almost instantly and full resolution images are preloaded so the hovering works as smoothly as possible.
As a result everything loads much faster and threads with several images are easier to read.

For example, this thread:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1800909.0
is converted to this:


Here's a more extreme example where you can test this script:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3012663.msg31190942#msg31190942



To install this script get Tampermonkey on Chrome, Greasemonkey on Firefox, or Violentmonkey on Opera (Read more here: https://openuserjs.org/about/Userscript-Beginners-HOWTO) and then install this:
https://openuserjs.org/scripts/EcuaMobi/Bitcointalk_images

If you want to change the max size for images, just open the code of the script after installing it and update MAX_WIDTH and/or MAX_HEIGHT

preloading large images still wastes bandwidth for users on mobiles or tethered to mobiles.

Indeed. There isn't any improvement regarding saving bandwidth. The target of this userscript is to improve usability instead.
If you want to save bandwidth (at the cost of the hovering not working so smoothly) just comment or remove the 2 lines below "// Preload full image"


I'll probably add a boolean constant for that purpose on the next version.
