How to use Less Data with Chrome Data Saver?

How Data Saver works

When you load a web page without Data Saver, the browser connects directly to the websites web server and your mobile data just passing traffic and charging for it. But while using Data Saver, Google servers will compress the web page and reduce the amount of data you’re browsing with faster. I have used it recently and find really effective for saving much data and. Don’t worry it won’t do anything wrong without than saving data, here are some things which Data Saver do:

  • Some websites might not be able to accurately determine your location.
  • Some images might look a little fuzzy.
  • Internal websites, such as your company’s internal sites, might not load.
  • Sites that your mobile carrier uses to authenticate and bill you might not work. For example, you might have trouble logging into your mobile phone provider’s website.
  • Local settings will be ignored if you manually modified your /etc/hosts file.
