The feature appeared back in 2014 as a way to load web pages with less data, which can be useful for those who have a small data plan for their smartphone.
Having sold phones and data plans to customers in a previous career, the end of this feature is just good news for me, but mostly for customers who read their content every day from Chrome on a mobile device.
When will Chrome 100 appear?
According to Google Roadmap status page for Chromeversion 100 will appear on March 29, and the beta version will arrive around March 3.
This will apply to all versions of Chrome – from mobile to desktop on PC, and Mac Chromebook.
But with the data saving feature only in Android versions, many users will not miss it, especially because there are built-in data saving features Android 12 for all apps anyway by going to Settings> Cellular Data.
Working in a phone shop for years before changing professions as a writer, helping customers with their phones and the data they will use would be a common task for me. Some came in and asked me why they got a text that said they had 80% monthly data usage.
Depending on how many data applications will be used, a web browser usually ranks first on this list. But that was at a time when 2GB of data per month would be normal to see, not the 150GB per month or unlimited plans we all see in advertising.
But if a “lightweight” mode appears in a browser or social media program such as Facebook, it will worsen the experience. I remember uploading pixel images instead or deleting certain content so that the text was everywhere.
However, it’s finally time to see these features – they only hinder, not help, if you’re trying to search for something or read the latest news in Chrome on your Samsung S22.
As the Google Chrome version reaches its centenary, it’s nice to see that it disappears, and instead enriches the content that is available to your interests across the web.
However, Firefox is there also approaching version 100, so there is a chance that we will also see that Mozilla will have a landmark feature. March will be a busy time for web browsers on many devices, and I’m here for that.
