Today, Opera announced the emergence of ad blocker in the stable version of Opera for computers, as well as Opera Mini for Android. We decided to get acquainted with the new function more closely and see how it can save bandwidth for mobile users.
Recently published the results of an interesting study , the object of which were advertisements on popular news sites. It has been found that in some cases advertisements consumes up to 79% of traffic from mobile users visiting them. This means that if you do there is a limit on the data, you run out of it much faster due to the sheer amount of downloadable advertising.
What to do?
Opera Mini browser for Android developers offer a solution in the form of built-in ad blocker. They promise that it can be used not only to save mobile data traffic, but also significantly speed up the loading of pages. In their words , without advertising the new version of Opera Mini loads web pages 40% faster than conventional surfing.
We checked out a job ad blocker and found it just amazing. Together with the company’s data compression feature, it allows you to get a huge traffic economy.For example, when loading the main page Layfhakera or “Yandex” search engine saving of up to 90%. The speed of loading pages visually, too, has increased significantly in comparison with the established on the same device browser the Google Chrome.
