    To be frank, when I switched on the 'off-road' formerly known as 'turbo' mode on my Opera browser for android, I didn't feel much of a difference when I was on 200MB 3g+ package. But when I went 2g (post 200MB), I did feel it. It enabled me to browse pages relatively faster than that of UC Browser or Dolphin Browser. Also, I've noticed that prior to using the off road mode, a single log in and 5 minutes surfing facebook costed me 6000-8000 kilobytes, but now after same usage, it is costing me only 800-1200 Kb. This means you are able to reduce your data usage considerably as every single Kb counts when you are on a limited mobile data package.

    the turbo option in the opera brower works fine!
    i used opera for a long time, and i felt that the turbo is worth activating.
    turbo uses the opera servers to make a cache of the site we are surfing and provide the content to us after that, in this process the original images on the page are compressed and served for a faster web experience.
    when it comes to the data saving , it is common sense that if data is served compressed then it will be less than actual.

    but now i am using firefox 25, as firefox serves best if you use to surf the sites frequently, as it save the cache etc.
    surf a site first time it will take some time, if you open again and again, once it will be instant loading of that site.

    i recommend use of mozilla firefox.
