Install Data Saver Extension & Save Internet Bandwidth

Everyday you come across many sites with lots of images, videos, web graphics and what not. Well we do not think about how much data that page might be consuming as maximum people are using the unlimited broadband connection. But still it can take a good amount of time to load heavy files and yes not to mentioned people still running on limited (metered connection) could be facing that data loss issue.

Like I personally use two connections broadband at home and while traveling I use Airtel 4G, well I get good speed but with limited data, hence I have to pay more for extended bytes package. Well earlier I posted about the UC Browser which added this new page compressing feature.

Well now I found a very interesting chrome extension that works in the background and helps you save good amount of data.
