This is a common request, but I doubt it will be in 1.0.  Perhaps in a
version after that.  I can't spot this on the BTS's wish list.  If you
could add it, that would be great.

This might be tricky to implement due to CSS complexities, but again it
would have to wait until after 1.0 if it were implemented.  This is
already on the bug tracking system's wishlist.

Do you mean keep a cache of images used on websites?  If so, NetSurf
already does this (and infact images are the only thing it does cache.)
I assume an overhaul of the caching system is on the cards, but again it
will have to wait until after 1.0.
