10 Awesome Chrome Flags You Should Enable Right Now
Enhance your browsing experience with these experimental features
(Image source: Author)Wouldn’t it be cool if you could magically upgrade your browser with features not known to the average Chrome user?
Below are ten Chrome flags that help you to do just that.
Chrome Flags are experimental features that aren’t yet enabled by default. To enable these, see chrome://flags. The flags stated below may be in the pipeline for official release in the near future. However, as of writing, they are still in testing.
Reader ModeReader Mode removes unnecessary visual clutter for distraction-free reading — highly important when so many visual elements fight for our attention. Poof, gone.
Focus ModeFocus Mode opens the tab in a new framed window, omitting the tab strip and search bar for a cleaner interface.
Impulsive-Style Scroll AnimationsRebuilding their Edge platform, Microsoft has brought their natural scrolling motion to Chromium.
“The main idea is that each ‘tick’ of the mouse wheel tries to mimic a physical-based world where content starts moving quickly (an impulse) and then slows due to friction.” — Microsoft
Tab GroupsTab Groups is for grouping and managing multiple tabs together, such as for different types of cheese.
PDF Two-Up ViewPDF Two-Up View is for viewing a PDF with two pages at a time. Interesting.
Force Dark Mode for Web ContentsThis forces all websites to render in a dark theme — even those that don’t have one yet, such as Medium. Yes, looking at you, Medium.
Quieter Notification Permission PromptsThis is a simple feature to reduce permission prompts disrupting your flow.
Tab Hover CardsTab Hover Cards displays the tab previews on hover. It probably comes in handy when you have over 30 tabs open and can’t read the tab titles anymore.

Enable Page Sharing via QR CodeThis flag allows you to share web pages with QR codes, for easily sending content to your phone. Of course, it comes with the awesome Dino mascot. Note: As of writing, this only seemed to work on Chrome Canary.
Parallel DownloadingChrome can establish multiple connections to download a single file in parts, resulting in an increase in download speed.
ConclusionThere are many more Chrome flags that are in testing, and many more features yet to come. If you like to live on the edge, check out Chrome Canary — the bleeding edge of the web. Thanks for reading.
