Android: Google has updated its Data Saver mode in Chrome to remove most images when loading a page over a slow connection. This keeps image-heavy sites from eating up all your data and speeds up your web browsing.
The company says the update saves as much as 70 per cent more data. With Data Saver mode turned on (under Settings > Advanced), Chrome will try to both compress pages and block images when it detects you have a slow connection. Don’t worry: You’ll have the option to tap to load the images if you wish.
The update is rolling out first in India and Indonesia, with other countries getting this expanded mode in the next few months.
