Download fast, Dark Mode, Sneak Peek Tab – Gadgets to Use

Google Chrome and other Chromium-based browsers come with Chrome flags, which are experimental features that Google does not enable by default. In this article, we will tell you five useful Chrome flags that can enhance your browsing experience on any other Chromium-based browser, such as Chrome or Microsoft Edge.

Top 5 Chrome Flags to Use in Google Chrome

Google is constantly testing new features for Chrome that are not part of the default browser. However, you can run them manually in just a few simple clicks. While hundreds of test features are available as flags, below are five simple Chrome flags that will enhance your daily browsing.

1. Quick downloads

If you’ve used third-party download managers before, you may have noticed that these browsers use multi-threat techniques to speed up downloads. In the words of ordinary people, they download parallel file fragments instead of one large chunk.

The parallel download flag implements the same technique in Chrome and speeds up the overall download speed.

Steps to use:

  1. Enter the chrome: // flags in the search bar.
  2. On the next page, look for “parallel download”.
  3. Click the drop-down menu nearby Co-download Replace it Enabled.
  4. Restart the browser.

2. Tab hover cards

Imagine working with a dozen tabs, confused as to what is used for which job. The tab hover flag solves this problem by showing a mouse overview.

Using this, you can quickly find out which tabs are important and which ones are not. This saves you the hassle of opening each tab separately.
