I might be wrong, but all of the ideas so far would need to be 
implemented server side.

If you are running this stuff on the client, then you have to download 
the original pages and graphics first to convert them.

Chris, if you are talking about general browsing of any webpage, then 
you might be out of luck.

If you have the authority to install this stuff on the server, then why 
is the link from client to server costing you so much?
