Yes, it takes time to download graphics then render the page.
If that is a bother, then Arachne can be run as text-only.

As do I, mostly for multiple downloads in background.
But I call Elinks from within Arachne whenever I need functions that
Arachne doesn't have natively. i.e. I use Elinks as an Arachne plug-in.

See also http://www.ausreg.com/arachne/ for some of the stuff that extends
Arachne's capabilities.
