Chrome will benefit from an even more powerful data saver on Android called Simple mode. This allows users to save their data when they use the browser, but above all to speed up the loading of pages.

Here’s how it will work: “Simple mode will reduce data usage by using Google’s servers to compress the pages you visit before downloading them. […] Simple mode tells web servers that you want to get a less data-using version of the site, if available”The American giant explains.

We also learn that “If Chrome predicts that it will take longer than 5 seconds for the first text or image to appear on the screen, it will load the Lite version of the page”. “Lite pages are highly optimized for significantly faster loading”added.
