Google is on a mission to help you save on data usage when using Chrome to browse on your Android: its Data Saver mode has been updated to now save up to 70 percent by neglecting to load most images. This is handy when you're running a slow connection or just want to save on data. Once the page -- minus images -- is loaded, you can choose to load all or select images.

The update is only available in India and Indonesia for the time being, but more countries will see it in the coming months.
