Firefox with the web developer extension allows you do selectively 
disable all or some stylesheets persist a user stylesheet or other 
formatting tweaks. Also has a lot of options for highlighting block 
elements, replace images with alt tags, turn off images, and keyboard 
shorcuts to validators of your choice.

Highly recommended.
