just the other day, i noticed that all the images viewed via safari are all compressed/lower resolution. at first i thought it was just my safari having problems/bugs.. then when i fired up firefox and opera, i got the same result. compressed-looking low res images!! try this: http://www.wallpapergarage.com/library/Roadster/7_1024.jpg (full size 1280x1024 jpg wallpaper) and this is a screen cap of my display: you can clearly see the pixelation from the screen cap.. based on initial finding, it could be my ISP (globe visibility) that is doing the "image optimization" to make the download faster (i guess?) but i dont want faster image loading. i want my full resolution images! anyone out there using visibility and have the same kind of problems? or is it just me and something i accidentally pressed on my computer? very annoying!!
