Google Chrome is the browser, par excellence, most used among the Android community, just like Safari for iPhone. With each update that happens, there are more functions to explore, so you always have to keep an eye on the news that they implement. In this case, it is the Google Chrome flags, or what is the same, its more experimental functions.
These functions do not enter the beta phase of the browser, of which there is a separate application, but are integrated within the final version, which we all have. In short, they are options that can be very useful if used, but there are several things to keep in mind.
What are Chrome Flags?
As we say, they are experimental options that every user can enjoy if they are activated, and that will be fully implemented in the browser … or not. In principle, they are there so that anyone can try it without having to participate in a development program or download an external app.
It is not necessary to be a programmer or an engineer to handle these functions, since each flag includes a text that explains the operation of each of them, and we decide whether to use it or not. That is, the application of these flags can lead to browser or malfunction when loading certain pages.
How to activate the flags?
The procedure to activate these functions is very simple, since all you need is a URL and the browser search bar. The link that we must insert is the following: chrome: // flags. From here, we will see a menu of experimental options of the most extensive. It makes us think that, just when we created it to know everything about Google Chrome, we discovered that there is much more to explore.
So many options that we even lose sight, even if it is all in English, so you have to know what we activate, but everything is to try. The biggest problem that can cause us is that we lose the navigation data, something that is not at all serious, but we must be careful, since Google uses that data to check its operation. Once chosen, we will click on enabled and we will restart the browser, so that the changes are effective.
All the flags that we can activate
Thus, when we have internalized how the flags are activated, we are ready to activate any of them in Google Chrome, which are not few by the way. We will show both the URL to enter, as well as the utility that it fulfills.
