How to Use 'Flags' to Access Google Chrome's Hidden Features?


Google Chrome, one of the most popular browsers in the Internet world, offers some customizations under the name of Chrome Flags for those who are always looking for more, although it contains add-ons and features to a large extent. We examine the most popular Flags features.


Google Chrome is the most popular internet browser of recent years and continues to increase the number of users day by day. Although the add-ons and countless features you can add to Google Chrome seem confusing and too much for some users, it contains many more customizations under the name of "Flags", except for Chrome extensions.


Chrome Flags not only improves the stability and performance of the browser, but you can also customize many things such as dark mode, tab listing and colouring with Flags. Let's take a closer look at the most popular Chrome Flags features and how to use Flags.


How to use Chrome Flags?


Step # 1: Copy the Chrome: // flags address to the URL bar and press Enter.

Step # 2: Find the feature you want and select "Enabled".

Step # 3: After doing "Enabled", click the "Relaunch" button and you're done.


It is worth noting that many customizations under the name Flags are experimental and incomplete projects. These features can sometimes affect the stability of Chrome or your computer. Therefore, it is useful to use quite a few reliable Flags customizations in the first step.


There is a method you can use to find the Flags customizations you want quickly. When you copy the code of the feature you want to use and search in the URL bar, Chrome will direct you directly to those Flags.



Global media control:

chrome: // flags / # global-media-controls

Thanks to the global media control, you can do all the controls with the icon on the toolbar without having to go to that tab while listening to music or playing a video on YouTube in another tab. For this reason, global media control enables you to have a smoother and easier YouTube experience.



Reader mode:

chrome: // flags / # enable-reader-mode

If you are reading too many articles and similar articles on the internet, the many distracting different details on the current page are bothering you. To prevent this, you can activate the reader mode. In this way, Chrome will make the site you want the simplest with only text and related images for you.



Tab grouping:

chrome: // flags / # tab-groups

If you are constantly using a large number of tabs in Chrome and have trouble coping with these tabs, the tab grouping feature is for you. With this feature, you can group your tabs, set group names and assign a different colour to each tab.



Dark mode (Desktop / Mobile):

chrome: // flags / # enable-force-dark

Chrome already has a mode where you can make the toolbar and parts of the browser dark. But if you say this is not enough, you can use all pages in your browser with dark mode.



Extension menu:

chrome: // flags / #-extensions-toolbar menu

Although extensions, perhaps the most used feature of Google Chrome, are beneficial, keeping these extensions under control can be a challenging task for individuals using dozens of extensions. At this point, you can use the extensive menu of Chrome. This way, your extensions will be listed under the Extensions menu instead of being listed on the toolbar.
