Once you’re done making changes, Chrome will prompt you to start the browser to enable the setting.

This option might not be super useful on a desktop machine, although it is supported on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome OS, it should prove very handy on mobile devices. Supported on iOS and Android, this feature could prove pretty invaluable for those with tight data caps. This feature is still in early development, so don’t expect it to arrive in the stable channel for quite some time.
