I am going to be camping for a while in an area where I will be using the cellular data network for inter-net. I like to buy data in 500MB increments. There are a lot of sites or URLs that use very little data. And there are some sites or URLs that use a lot of pictures that can use more data than I would like to use. It would be nice if there was some kind of add-on for a browser that could tell you how much data is involved in viewing a website prior to downloading the data to the browser.

Do you know if there is any kind of add on that will tell you how much data is involved in viewing a particular URL prior to viewing it?

Unfortunately I do not. Let me know if you find anything. Scott.

I looked around quite a bit and I couldn't find anything. But I think I've found another solution to my problem.

I'm sure you've heard of "mobile hotspots". You can get a 5GB data plan for around $50 depending on what plan you use. I won't be worried about spending $25 for 500MB with that.

Thanks just the same, Scott.
