Save bandwidth while using Chrome with Google's new Data Saver extension

Google has brought its data saving technology to the web through a new Chrome extension called Data Saver which is currently in beta. Google's data saving technology has been around for a while but only on the mobile version of the Chrome browser but this time round, web users can also take advantage of it.

The extension utilizes Google’s data compression proxy service to optimize pages before serving them to your browser. It doesn't work with SSL and incognito pages at present, and you’ll need Chrome 41 or newer to use it.
You can head over to the Chrome web store and install the new Data Saving (beta) chrome extension and start saving on some precious data especially if you are on a capped connection.
