    ^Lol at the last question. I donno, this is a little strange, but try... just try asking Mid-Day... they keep track of vegeatable prices. I donno, this is a very interesting question. I will try something... lol.
    Ok. I didn't understand question 2), can you clarify that a bit?
    For question 3) Yes, you can download the firefox extensions. Do right-click and save as, the files are saved as .xpi files. If you use Opera or any other browser, the extension get's saved to any location on the hard disk that you specify.
    As for question number 1) apart from ad-block, there is a firefox extension that blocks flash. Don't install flash at all if it helps. The web developer toolbar for Firefox is another great option. You can use it to disable images, javascript and css. This reduces firefox to essentially a text-only browser, so you might as well go right ahead and use yawle, which is a text-only browser to begin with - no chance of anything getting loaded or blocked.

    Thanks for ur valuable reply.

    i will try for Mid-Day. but i think its mumbai based paper and not having the information about the markets i want.

    i mean the pen drive like hardware "wireless Modem" given by GSM operator for wireless internet e.g. Idea give NetSetter for Rs. 2000. that device have a sim inside, can i use that modem for other operator like airtel or any other.

    OK, but does it reduce total data transfer. it only block the images and flash form displaying in browser, but those actually get loaded on pc. if it doesnt reduce total data transfer its of no use for me. my target is to reduce the total data transfer.

    You can try inserting airtel sim. But you may get some message like "ONLY SPECIFIED SIM CARD CAN BE USED" or so, if it is locked. In that case you can use data card unlocker HERE

    Use these extensions too in case you wanna continue with FF

    Flashblock - for flash blocking
    FEBE - For taking a complete backup of FF bookmarks/addons/search plugins/preferences etc
    Imglikeopera - For blocking all images in all webpages like Opera
