Android hack for Desktop using Data Compression Proxy in Google Chrome

Data Compression Proxy for Google Chrome is an experimental extension for Google Chrome bringing Chrome Data Compression Proxy from mobile to desktop PCs

Data Compression Proxy

The extension sends all HTTP (but not HTTPS) traffic through Chrome Data Compression Proxy server, which uses SPDY protocol to speed up web browsing. Enabled state is indicated by a green icon. You can manually disable the proxy by clicking on the icon. When the proxy raises an error, it is being automatically disabled for 30 sec, so that the request can be resent

The statistics at chrome://net-internals/#bandwidth could be 0.0 due to a Chromium bug. The extension works anyway as long as you see the following response header: via: 1.1 Chrome Compression Proxy
