How to use Google’s Data Proxy on iPad to save data?

Google Data Proxy supposedly compresses your internet traffic so that you can use less data when you view websites. Sounds good to me, I use up most of my data each month, so a cushion would be nice. I assume it requires using the Chrome browser. What else do I need to do to enable Google Data Proxy? Also, how does it work beyond than simply using a proxy, as suggested in the name?

It works by delivering web pages that Google has already cached to a plug-in, as you suspected. The instructions for installing it on Chrome can be found here:

And you can also download Opera, it does something similar.

David has a great answer already for this. But here's a link to Chrome in the iTunes store:
