Chrome for Android Gets a Turbo Mode

Chrome for Android will get a Turbo Mode in the near future, which will reduce data consumption and deliver a faster browsing. It is similar to Opera’s Turbo Mode or Amazon Silk Browser and in this mode, Chrome loads optimized webpages (compressed pages) via Google’s servers, so Chrome can render webpages at lightning speed.


It is based on Google’s SPDY (pronounced speedy) an experimental TCP-based network protocol. Webpages are compressed via Google SPDY proxy servers so that they use much less data than the originals.

This feature still in development is available behind a switch that you can enable by running:
adb shell ‘echo “chrome –enable-spdy-proxy-auth” > /data/local/tmp/content-shell-command-line’ [via]
