Google will no longer use the Data Saver extension for desktop versions of the Chrome web browser when the stable version reaches version 74. The company renamed Data Saver to Lite mode and decided to make Android exclusive.
The company launched Data Saver in Chrome for Android to reduce the load time and bandwidth of the Chrome browser. Similar to Opera Turbo, Data Saver has transmitted (some) traffic through Google servers to compress the data and speed up website load times.
Google Introduced a New Feature called Lite Pages in 2019 Contains core components of Data Saver and has an API that allows servers to provide different content to users based on connection quality.
Google chose to rename Data Saver in Lite mode in April 2019. The Lite mode still stores up to 60% of the data when active which results in faster page loads and less memory usage.
When Chrome predicts that a page will take more than 5 seconds The first text or image that appears on the screen will load a lite version of the page instead.
Google notes that lite mode releases the HTTPS URL for Google, but does not cover other information such as "cookies, credentials, and personalized pages," and this lite mode "never breaks secure links between Chrome and" a website. "
Chrome users on Android can enable the new feature by opening Settings> Lite Mode and enabling the feature by toggling it on. If the data saver was previously enabled in Chrome for Android, it will become the Lite mode auto-activation.
The downside of the announcement is that Lite mode is available exclusively for Google Chrome for Android, and Google plans to release the Chrome Data Saver extension for Chrome desktop versions in Chrome 74, which is now available. In other words, there is no official option for using Data Saver or Lite mode on the desktop, at least not in the foreseeable future.
The Data Saver extension has the data storage feature on desktop versions of Google Chrome integrates web browsers, and users of Chrome desktops could benefit from the same data storage technology that also supports the Android version of Chrome.
The Data Saver extension was a great option for Chrome users who are facing the Internet at times or unreliably. The removal leaves them without this option, at least when it comes to the desktop version of Chrome.
Although there is a possibility that Data Saver will continue to work even after Google officially depreciated the extension, it is not yet clear how long this will take
Well, you : Use Data Saver or other data storage functions or extensions
