This data saver is smart and improved browsing experience on a slow connection. It automatically optimizes HTTP websites to their essentials and saves up to 90% of your data, loading 2 times faster!
Google Chrome has also added a new download feature whichts you save the web page, music, picture, or video that you like in just one tap. You do not need to worry about restarting the download if you lose internet connection even with big files. When Chrome goes online, it will resume downloading from where it paused.
