Check the results after browsing more websites, mine are very different: Opera Mini saved 65% (467/1310MB) and Google Chrome only 32% (522/764MB).
Yep, I expect more use might extract more of a spread in the results. Visiting different sites may also yield different results as well, so I wanted to avoid anything that wasn't a one-to-one comparison.
One thing to have in mind is that in chrome the page is fully functional. I've seen that some pages render a little different and some menus don't work when using opera mini
What about Puffin browser
I did not test it. If you have any data from your own tests, you are welcome to post it as a comment.
Chrome saves less(14%) then Opera mini(90%),but chrones better as its pages are live.nd support animation whereas opera doesnt give it.
The main problem is Chrome doesn’t pass HTTPS to it server, maybe on security issue, but many pages now on HTTPS even news website, that’s annoying anyway. I would prefer UC Mini than Chrome, or Opera Mini, Even on Opera Mini the intrerface is better. I only need to read the text on the website, not seeing image or taking a good Browsing Experience. Also in my country, data plan is very expensive.. That’s the problem Why I use proxy browser more than normal browser. But there’s something still nudging me, errr… Will not loading image and not load js on proxy browser and normal browser will create same result data downloaded? Or still better proxy browser.. Because sometimes I hate having install an apps for it anyway, but yeah… There’s a problem when disabling JS…
Benyamin, to answer your question about loading images and script through proxy browsers, the way that proxy browsers work is by compression (primarily). The images you download through a proxy browser are not as large as if you downloaded them directly through the site. As a result, they are sometimes lower quality, but typically that’s a fair trade-off. Scripts are also compressed, and in some cases discarded altogether. For pages rendered by script, you see the final HTML via the proxy, so the proxy browser doesn’t need to send the script as well. While over-simplified, that’s generally what is happening.
