Orkut For Low Bandwidth Users




Orkut has a very nice feature for all the users who are bandwidth concious. If you have limited bandwidth and are addicted to Orkut, you can save a lot of your bandwidth by using Orkut in the low bandwidth mode. Since the biggest thing in size on a web-page are the images, they eat a lot of bandwidth but, this can be prevented thanks to a built-in feature by Orkut. After activating, it will remove all the unwanted images from the Friends Updates, Friend’s List and Communities and show only text

You can see the two screenshots below, and find out the difference yourself.
