What is Save-Data: on?

Save-Data: on is an Edge add-on designed for conscious data users. It communicates to websites about your preference to save data, potentially leading to the display of lower quality images and fewer media elements. This tool operates by sending the 'Save-Data: on' HTTP header with each request. Note that this is not a data compression proxy service; it relies on the websites' willingness to offer data-saving versions of their content.
