Hi guys. Came accross this last night and thought it was pretty cool and can save you lots of data via compression with internet browsing. As you know...many web sites have high quality images on them that can chow data very quickly. I sometimes just browse and check some sites erm..nice pics...and after one session of this..can easily use 100 - 200 megs just browsing in one night. This works on android phone and 3G on your laptop.
go to www.fastun.com and register your free account. Once done you can change in your profile settings on the website the kind of compression you want. I have mine on max and it compresses the images to hell...but you can choose one that works for you. Then you do the following:
In firefox, you can get a addon for this somehow...though I just changed my proxy server as follows:
It will then ask you for your username and password when you go to your next website ... enter what you regitered with on the website.
compression is now enabled and will save you data. There are limits imposed on the free accounts though. If you dont want compression for certain sites...use another browser like Chrome where you have not loaded the proxy or just delete the proxy settings again.
Go into your network settings, go into, then edit your APN settings with the proxy settings as above. Tested it on my web browser on my RAZR and it works.
Anyway...just thought it was pretty cool and could help guys and gals on here save on some data if they want. :-)
