Chrome includes many hidden experimental features called flags. These experimental options use your CPU and GPU to optimize the web browsing. To access these features, open your Chrome browser and type “about:flags” in the address bar. You can change the following options in that page.
- GPU compositing on all pages (Change it from default to enabled)
- Threaded compositing (Change it from default to enable)
- Disable accelerated 2D canvas.
- Enable override software rendering list.
- Disable GPU VSync Mac, Windows, Linux, and Chrome OS.
- GPU-accelerated SVG filter (enable)
- Disable accelerated CSS animations.
You can change these options at your own risk. Depending on your system’s configuration and the version of Chrome you are using, some of the options may or may not be enabled by default. And effect of these changes depends on the graphics drivers and OS updates, you’ve installed in your computer.
