How To Save Data Using Google Chrome Data Saver Extension

Updated on August 17, 2016

Chrome Is a Memory Hog!

Google Search Engine is one of the most popular search engines around. Google Chrome is one of the most used browsers around. But Google Chrome browser is one of the most memory collectors out there as well. What I mean by this is that Chrome takes up a lot of memory on mobile devices as well as on PCs and laptops. It also does vary by website and video footage and photo images as well. Bandwidth also plays a major roll in how much memory you use in browsers because of the rendering of images and webpages and how well they perform. For most people nowadays, they are not using home internet services anymore. Because mobile data seems to be much more reliable than home internet services and even wifi routers for the most part. So consumers are either on a limited data plan via phones or mobile hotspots and some use unlimited data plans. But, for those users that are on limited data plan have to watch how they are using the data. When on the web, there are ways to monitor how much data you are using, especially on Google Chrome. One particular application or extension you can download to help monitor the data being used online is called "Data Saver beta" which can be found in the Chrome Web Store. In the video below will show you how to down load this app and install and how to monitor your data. Also follow the screenshots as well. You may take a look after the break...
