Data Saver is a new extension for Google Chrome that helps you to compress the web sites you visited to reduce data usages when browsing.
Google has launched a tool for Chrome designed to reduce data usages when surfing the web. Data Saver is an extension for Chrome, and is something that could already enjoy the mobile version of Chrome on both Android and iOS. If you want to use less data, enabling this option will allow you to browse all the same sites with little noticeable difference. The Save data is quite useful for those cases where you do not have an unlimited connection; or when you connect to a network in the street with a very poor speed.
How does Data Saver work?
When you install and activate the extension Data Saver, it uses Google servers to reduce the amount of data that is downloaded when you visit any website. Of course, the size of the reduction will depend largely on the type of page and the contents.
To activate it you just need to install the extension, and by default should start working immediately, if not so just simply press the button on the browser toolbar to turn on and off at will.
For now the Data Saver does not support secure (https) server and the incognito tabs. This means that they will always be loaded without saving data. Of course, if you’re using the extension number of things can happen: some images may be blurred or pixilated because the quality of the load to save data is reduced; websites that use your location probably will not work properly because this uses more data; and some sites intranets or your carrier may misbehave. For example, you may not be able to log on to the website of your mobile operator.
When each megabyte is calculated, this feature is very useful. On the other hand, if you have a fast data connection with unlimited data, navigation can be a bit faster without data compression enabled.
You can activate the extension by using the link below.
