From time to time we’ve been making tutorials about activating and deactivating certain features in Google Chrome to achieve desired results. If you are following our articles closely then might have seen that most of the settings are experiments and the URL we use to access those settings is chrome://flags. The flags page is where all the experimental features are listed.
The above URL is not the only one that Chrome has, there are several other Chrome URLs which can do different tasks and different levels. So, here is a massive list of all Chrome URLs that can be used by your geekiness. I’ve not only shared a list of all the Chrome URLs but, I’ve also specified their purpose, so you can use them more effectively.
