Google Chrome has a number of hidden settings, some of which are disabled by default because they are experimental. Many of these make it eventually into Chrome as a regular feature, or some of them get dropped. In any case, you should note that the experimental settings can disappear any time. I would like to share with you some of the interesting Google Chrome hidden settings which can improve your browsing experience. We will start with a secret option called "Enable Fast Tab/Window Close" which affects the browser's tab closing performance.
Here is how it can be enabled.
- Open the Google Chrome browser and type the following text in the address bar:
This will open the flags page directly with the relevant setting.
- Click the Enable link under the option. It will change its text to Disable.
- Restart Google Chrome by closing it manually or you can also use the Relaunch button which will appear at the very bottom of the page.
That's it. You are done.
