If you are keen on using Google Chrome as it is the most powerful and modern browser on the market you might have some issues with slow loading pages, especially if you are using an internet service with limited coverage, or really slow download speeds.
Google Chrome has had a feature for its mobile devices called the data saver that works by taking all the assets on a website and loading them through Google’s servers and compressing them with Google’s Page Speed tool. This in turn makes the website load a lot faster and it can save you 20 percent or move data that you would have used without this feature enabled.
Google, also has a tool for their desktop browser known as the Chrome Data saver extension and it can be installed via the Chrome Webstore. This tool allows users to save bandwidth and to improve the load time of otherwise slow loading websites. Let’s breakdown how this works.
It’s essentially Google picking up the slack for webmasters who aren’t doing their jobs.
This tool also can be used as a proxy since all the resources are being served from Google’s servers which in turn can acts as a privacy protection tool. If are looking to add this to your chrome browser simply download it here from the Chrome Webstore and click enable and you will be good to go!
