Prevents download of third party media files (Video,Images,CSS,JS,Fonts) reducing data usage and increasing load times.
If your home internet package includes a monthly data limit or you use 3G/4G internet on-the-go or at work, data usage is always an issue. Often avoiding watching large videos online helps to solve the problem, but much of the time when you browse the internet, the pages you visit will have visual and audio content that are automatically downloaded and shown to you, even if you don't want to see them. This app is primarily for those users who want to keep their data footprint small when they browse the web, with the option of turning off images, video, or other multi-media features that your browser will go ahead and grab without your consent. Just install and click the button at the top of your web browser to let it know what you don't want to download.
- (2020-09-10) Chris Ferrara: This extension is amazing for working while on a metered connection (hotspot with data limit). My only suggestion would to be add a few more fine controls. Specifically I'd like an ON/OFF switch that I can toggle quickly for use when I get back on an unmetered connection. I'd also like to be able to see a list of website's that I have set custom settings for. Right now the only way is to check by going to each domain and checking the extensions, would be cool to have them all in one place. These are very minor issues though, this is an amazing tool, anybody on a hotspot or data limit needs this.
