Best way to save data... TURN IMAGES OFF. Whenever i use a browser, i usually want to read something. So i don't need to see the images which make it load slower and scroll weired. (this page on opera (mobile view) is 642kb with images on and 29kb images off.)

I would really like to use chrome but it doesn't support text reflow like dolphin. So until it does I won't.

Really want to use Chrome or the Chrome beta but the AOSP browser never hitches up on pinch to zoom or anything else while Chrome lags a bit.

I just got an update for chrome today but the "whats new" area says "print from Chrome on Android KitKat devices and Stability and security updates." Totally different from this new discussed update. BTW, does anyone have a link to an APK file from the internet so I can use this feature faster? I can't find one and I don't wanna download load Chrome beta just to deleted in a couple of days when the updates comes out from the original version.

if chrome reduce data that mean they use proxy to compress your data. and we all know what happen when google get opportunities like this. 100% they are going to steal our data.

I used dolphin for flash. However, Next browser replaced that. I works just as good as Chrome in rendering web pages.
