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.
Its very unfortunate the service is shutting down
However i have tried to setup an instance on Heroku, how do i actually see that compression is taking place because i dont see the counters moving when i click the extension icon in firefox
Have you changed the URL in "Configure data compression service"? It should show a checkmark in the input field icon if everything is correct. When you change the URL and activate Bandwidth Hero - it should be working.
Noooooo! I saved a lot of data with it. I don't know why they turned it off. :c
Due to increased load and complains from ISP we had to shutdown the public data compression service.
You can still use the extension and save data if you install your own data compression service on Heroku or other hosting platform.

Pleas Optimze your Add for Mobile Version of Firefox like Android/Iphone.
Maybe on off button into adressbar?
It will be great when you save data more than images like "opera mini" !
I tried it on my android device using firefox, but how do I configure? no settings
Sir if the default url/proxy server is use the issue is fixed but when I am using my own proxy the issue remains
ok it is fix now.. I have to create new and deploy
Works very well on large JPEG images. I had to stare at the screen really closely to notice the images were slightly blurry, even when using the highest compression setting. Currently saving 71% on image downloads. Only found two problems: 1. "Convert to black and white" is on by default. I suggest changing this to "off". 2. The transparent background on some GIF and PNG images comes out as black. It would be better if the compression process was skipped for GIFs and PNGs (or at least for small ones, or those with transparent backgrounds).
what for a cool add-on! for me the add-on of the month! of the year??? perhaps.................
thank you so much anatoliy!
5 big stars!!!
The best compromise I've seen so far between data savings and privacy, without resorting to blocking images entirely. Beats using shady data-compression proxies any day, in my opinion.
Also, considering how badly optimized many sites are, the savings can (and do) easily go beyond the 50% mentioned in the description.
Thank you again so much for making this available to us Firefox users!
