A web page displays text, images and lots of colors and graphics. At times animations can be annoying and more importantly they can slow down the entire system which means it takes longer to open other pages and applications. If you are using Internet Explorer, then after pressing Esc to stop the animation, one needs to go to tab Advanced Tab under Internet Options and Tools. For Mozilla, a simple trick will take care of this. There is a slight difference between the older versions and newer ones of Firefox, but the basic functions remain the same. If you are an Opera user, you can simply uncheck the Enable F12.
