6 secret settings for better browsing in Chrome on Android

Hey. You. Yes, you there — the one with your eyes on the screen. What if I were to tell you that that the browser you rely on for all of your web-based activities on your phone had oodles of extra features — top-secret settings that’d add awesome powers into your Android browsing adventures and make wiggling your way around this wacky ol’ web meaningfully easier?

Well, provided you’re using Google’s Chrome browser for Android, that’s as true as true can be. And best of all, it doesn’t take much to uncover all of Chrome’s carefully concealed treasures — if you know where to look.

Continuing on our recent theme of digging up hidden features and out-of-sight time-savers, I decided to break out my metaphorical spelunker’s hat (which is quite some cap, lemme tell ya) and dive deep into Chrome’s cloudiest corners to see what sorts of goodies I could unearth. And good golly, did I find some fantastic stuff.

The six settings on this page will make your Android-based web browsing more powerful, more efficient, and more pleasant. They’re all just sitting there waiting to be found, too — so really, why not take advantage of what they have to offer?

Before we spelunk any further, though, one quick word of warning: All of these settings are part of Chrome’s flags system, which is a home for under-development options that are still actively being worked on and aren’t technically intended for mainstream use. The flags system is meant for expert users and other similarly informed (and/or insane) folk who want to get an early look at advanced items. (It also evolves pretty regularly, so it’s entirely possible some of the settings mentioned here may look different from what I’ve described or even be gone entirely at some point in the not-so-distant future.)

What’s more, the flags system has loads of advanced options within it, some of which could potentially cause websites to look weird, Chrome itself to become unstable, or even your ears to start spewing a delightfully minty steam. (Hey, you never know.) So in other words: Proceed with caution, follow my instructions carefully, and don’t mess with anything else you encounter in this area of the browser unless you actually understand it and genuinely know what you’re doing.

Got all that? Good. Now, let’s give your browser some spiffy new superpowers, shall we?

Chrome Android setting #1: The magic page-peeking panel

This first secret Chrome setting for Android is probably my favorite — ’cause it’s just so darn useful, at least with the way I tend to hop around websites on my phone (which is probably best described as an “all over the place” kind of hopping strategy).
