I'd like to reduce my data usage ... I looked at my data stats sice the last 2 weeks, and it come in at 371 MEGS !!! I tink I gotsta reduce that a bit. My local wireless offers me only 100 MEGS a month before they ding me with $3/MEG over charges.

Luckily I am on a 3 month unlimited plan initially so I can map out my usage and pick a data plan accordingly.

I am running firefox, and am using 'no' page style right now. Are there other things I can tweak in my internet world that will help me keep a handle on this data usage?

Thanx


TY :cheers:

Something else I notice in Firefox is that the status bar gets so far along and then it goes BACKWARDS like it's unloading data, and then it starts again in a forward motion. Makes me wonder if it's downloading parts of the page twice?!!

That might increase my data as well...

You can set any browser to not download pictures by default, it will show a place-holder where you can select that picture to download, that would have to help for normal web browsing...if it's your constant porn need that is pushing the limit, then I suggest some magazines or DVDs... :flipoff2:
