I’m sure a lot of you guys are not familiar with Chrome Flags.
What are Chrome Flags?
Chrome Flags are experimental Features that you can turn on on your chrome settings to give you a better chrome experience. Chrome flags work across all devices whether it is Windows, IOS or Android. But in this article, we will be taking a look at the ones that are really amazing on Android devices.
Note:- Since these are experimental features, they might cause a bit stutter or lag on your chrome and even cause it to crash sometimes. But trust me, they are probably worth trying.
All features mentioned in this article will be available in the Chrome Flags Store, to visit the store Open Chrome, and type this into the search bar: chrome://flags/
That will take you to the Flags homepage where you can explore available Flags.
#1. Smooth Scrolling
As the title suggest, this aims to reduce or completely remove any scrolling stutter or lag that you might face on your Android device.
To enable this, Go to the chrome Flags and simply search for Smooth Scrolling and enable it and of course, restart your Android chrome application. You will have to restart your Chrome Browser after enabling any Chrome flag feature in other to start using the feature you have enabled.
#2. Experimental Quick Protocol
This is a protocol that basically aims at speeding up your browsing experience so your pages will load faster. In general, your chrome browser will be faster than usual. However, this only works with websites that are optimised to make full use of this protocol but then, something is better than nothing.
#3. Reader Mode
Honestly, this is a great flag if you want to read stuffs off the internet and you don’t want to be disturbed by the ads, distracting images and other elements that are not texts.
You can turn on this flag by searching Reader mode inside Chrome Flags.
#4. Dark Mode
If you are a Dark mode fanatic and like the way it looks aesthetically as well as the amount of reduced strain that it puts on your eyes, you can turn on Force Dark Mode.
Some websites on the internet do support dark mode while some don’t but if you want all your websites to be in dark mode every time, then you should consider turning this on.
#5. Parallel Downloading
Ever been annoyed by the amount of time downloading large files via chrome takes, even if you have a pretty good internet connection.
Parallel Downloading will basically break down the file you are downloading into multiple files that are downloaded simultaneously at the same time so that it can get greater speed and also download the file quicker.
When the file is downloaded, it puts it back into one normal file and it will function exactly like a normal downloaded file.
