I have Google Chrome on my iPhone. It recently asked me if I wanted to enable Bandwidth Management (see https://developers.google.com/chrome/mobile/docs/data-compression). With this Reduce Data Usage mode enabled, "the browser uses Google’s servers to condense image file sizes and perform other optimizations to reduce bandwidth consumed by the page."
I tested this mode and discovered that I can get to pages that I have blocked by OpenDNS on our home network, even with Proxy/Anonymizer category blocked. I disabled Reduce Data Usage mode during testing yesterday and today the feature is not available on my phone. It's currently in beta so disabling it must've removed me from their pilot.
Can anyone else confirm what I've found?
