I do not know if it is technically possible but I assume it :

for all mobile users with limited data plan it would be much more interesting to know how much VOLUME or MEGABYTE they saved using AdBlock instead of the number of ads.

That was the reason why I started using adblock because I noticed one day that I had much data traffic on one webpage which used short ad videos. Reading 90 pages had needed a 230 MB volume transfer ...

Maybe it is possible to detect the volume of the blocked content and that amount is an important value / benefit of saved ressouces.

I would love to see the values of saved ressources by day and month.

    Hi WAB,

    Thanks for the suggestion! We've had a couple of requests for this in the past, but unfortunately this is not possible: we can't know the size of the ads unless we download them, and in which case the bandwidth hasn't actually been saved at all.
