  • Velmi dobře a dobrým způsobem šetří data až geniálně,děkuji vývojáři za tuto aplikaci
  • The Star rating system is so flawed for the kind of addons that this has developed into...

    Conceptwise, it is a clear 5.
    Ease of use, an even clearer 1.

    For the vast, vast majority of users the addon is now just a trap that they might waste much time trying to figure out. Until such a time it somehow automates the process of setting up and maintaining compression services again.

    Further, those who have no problem setting it up are unlikely to really need the star system to find their way here. They will come here via link from articles/blogs/forums and similar.

    So while it might not feel particularly fair, the only reasonable "Star Rating" is a 1.
  • Three hours after I confirmed signing up at Heroku I got an email saying I could deploy the app. After I deployed the app and configured the add-on with the URL from Heroku I got Bandwidth Hero to work. I will do some tests and evaluate Bandwidth Hero.
  • It works like a charm!
  • Reduced to 2 stars:
    Still a great add-on, BUT I have to delete and rewrite the address of the service that I have setup every time I restart Firefox.

    Some help please???

    ----------------

    It rocks!

    Setting up your own service is pretty easy and I would guess much more secure.

    About configuration on Android: Press the 3 dots (overflow button) and *scroll* to the end of the menu. You will see "Bandwidth Hero" and there you will find the settings for the add-on.
  • No longer works--you have to set up your own compression service to use this plug-in
  • This is AWESOME.

    Don't be worried about how to set up your own data compression service. It is very simple to do.

    Thank you so much for making this information/ app available.

    Does this also work for DRM content???
  • Hervorragend, im Schnitt 89% Einsparung mit extremer Komprimierung JPG20 - in Farbe. Reduziert die Ladezeit von Webseiten deutlich z.B. in Kombination mit O2 Free mit 1Mbit/s (worauf ich komplett umgestiegen bin seit im regionalen Kabelnetz von Cablesurf mit gebuchten 30MBit/s - jetzt PŸUR nicht mal mehr YouTube streaming in 360p zu Stosszeiten möglich war...
  • Service is down. Has a spot to enter your own proxy, but most people don't have one.
  • Great extension to save mobile internet quota. Just wondering how long heroku free acc will last.
  • Perfect for both mobile and PC, easy to setup, and great all around extension! XDDDD
  • I installed it and got this message. Why doesn't the site I downloaded the plugin say this?

    Public data compression service shutdown

    Due to increased load and complains from ISP we are shutting down public data compression service under https://compressor.bandwidth-hero.com

    You can continue using extension and save data by installing your own service.
