Solved Decrease data transfer Tags: Desktops Screen Resolution Browsers Networking Last response: January 3, 2013 10:53 PM in Networking Share siddharthmukul007 January 2, 2013 11:17:28 AM It may sound odd but i want to know if there is any way to decrease the amount of data transferred during browsing. I use firefox as a default browser and my screen resolution is 1080p. I know that less amount of data is required to display the same page on mobile than on a desktop. Is there any way or any browser to make that happen on a desktop as well?
