That's not correct. Any browser first downloads the .html files and then 
downloads the pictures etc. which
are linked inside the page. So when parsing the html document the 
Browser/Extension/Plugin/AdBlocker
may decide, which pictures to download and which not. So the pictures 
and so on won't be downloaded at all.

But that was quite OT, sorry for that. Drank some wine this evening ;)

Greets,
