Sometimes the data compression proxy extension and the Data Saver (beta) extension only work if you are already connected to internet. For example my ISP needs to login to use internet and I can enable these two extensions when I login to ISP-Internet Service Provider or else I can't connect to internet and hosts file has no use with these two extensions.

A word of warning when using data compression: It's the same mechanism, that Opera Mobile used to compress and speed up browsing. Basically all your traffic goes through the servers of the company in question (Chrome - Google, Opera Mobile - Opera), so it's a privacy issue of sorts. Of course the companies won't use that for any malicious activities, but might scan the content for keywords to determine certain things about you (like scanning for interests to better target their ad campaings). Just writing to let you know how the process might look. :)
There isn't a single thing that's impossible. Just the things that we don't yet know how to deal with. ;)

Yes, as my isp needs to login I already removed them. If anyone is comfortable using them then they will benefit, thanks. :)
