Data Compression in Chrome Beta

Chrome Beta features a data compression via SPDY proxy which compresses and minifies HTML/CSS/image files thus resulting in less time to load a website.

The compression will be done through a connection to SPDY proxy which is running on Google servers and then the content of webpage will be optimized Google’s Page speed libraries.

If you want to use the data compression via SPDY proxy, then just type ” chrome://flags” in your chrome browser’s address bar and then enable the “Experimental Data Compression Proxy”. Also to note that the compression will be done on non secure “http” based connections. Secure “https” based connections will bypass the proxy and will connect directly to the destination. Further details can be seen in Chromium Blog.
