Mountain View-based Internet giant Google is reportedly gearing up for bringing some appealing enhancements to its Chrome for Android browser, including some data compression capabilities that will make page loading work faster than before.

Apparently, the team behind the app is already experimenting with this technology, meant at reducing data consumption in the browser through “loading optimized web pages Google SPDY proxy servers,” as François Beaufort notes on Google+.

Apparently, the technology would be similar to that packed inside Opera’s mobile browsers, dubbed Opera Turbo, as well as to the Amazon Silk Browser feature.

For the time being, however, the feature is still in development, and it might take a while before Google actually implements it inside the publicly available flavors of the mobile browser.

Owners of Android devices can download Google’s Chrome browser for Android from Softpedia as well, via this link.
