This has been achieved using data-compression proxy. So basically, the data that you are surfing goes through Google’s servers where the service compresses it (especially the images) to help you save up to 50 percent of bandwidth.

To enable this feature and also to check how much data you are saving, users can go to Bandwidth under Settings and look for 'Reduce Data Usage' option.
