Chrome for Android To Cut Data Usage, Improve Speed

Chrome for Android To Cut Data Usage, Improve Speed on Freepps Top Blog
Various tricks like compressing data and deep caching are popular gimmicks among Android browsers as they speed up your mobile surfing experience significantly. 

Chrome for Android has been on the forefront of such endeavours lately, having a data saving mode that's really convenient with slower speeds. The latest approach to speeding up your browsing is not a half-measure as it will not display pictures thus saving you about 70% of data often guzzled by images.
 
Chrome's latest addition is clearly aimed at emerging and developing markets where unlimited data packages are expensive, speeds are low and coverage is patchy. India and Indonesia would be the first ones to receive the update, with further rollouts scheduled for 2016 if everything goes the right way. 

It's not the first app from Google to have received a data saving mode, as heavyweights like YouTube and Maps got offline modes earlier this year.

Using this feature in Chrome will be optional, and to activate one will have to enable "Data Saver Mode" in the three-dot menu.

Travellers who want to cut roaming expenses will surely appreciate this feature as well.

    I use chrome on my desktop, trying the Android one now. The latest version is so much better than the previous one I think.

    I do not like Chrome, but the latest addition is not too bad. It can be useful for travelling and saving money.

    I think that it's last age because today's internet speed allows to load content fast including videos and music.

    An excellent browser that never fails me. Every time more and more new features that delight their users. Very comfortable and modern.
