Description

Could you please add Text-Only mod into domain settings. I know there is already image blocking mod but i am talking about something very "Old" and "Pure". No web view, no scripts, no images, nothing else but simple plain text like this browser...

This would not be possible until the 4.x series. Additionally, this feature would require a fair amount of ongoing maintenance with each release of Privacy WebView, so I think it is unlikely I would ever implement it. But, I will leave the feature request open to see how much interest there is among users.

Instead of "Disable Images", it would be better to replace it with "Disable Media" & add all the rest of the media formats that fall under video, audio, gifs, etc. That would literally turn the browser into "Text Mode".

I am not sure that would give you what most people consider a text mode because, for example, you will still have the CSS layout information, which can waste screen space, alter font sizes, and otherwise prevent a pure text mode.

As far as I can tell, implementing this would require a lot of work to figure out which text is import, extract that text, and lay it out in what would basically be a TextView. It would be a constant battle and would probably require a fair amount of custom rules to work with various websites.
