Google Chrome is constantly changing. And sometimes in the version Google has released, they’ve disabled certain functions that might not be quite ready yet. But if you’re curious and want to see what they are, (and if you’re really brave are want to dare to enable them), type Chrome://flags in the address bar and press Enter. Before you decide to enable any of these disabled features, keep in mind they’ve all been disabled for a reason; if you enable one it may break your browser — so be adventurous and look, but use caution when enabling any of the features which are disabled by default. They may not be ready for prime time.

Here’s another command you can type in the Chrome address bar that will not only show you how much of your computer memory Chrome is using, but also the memory other browsers on your computer are using. Type Chrome://memory in the Chrome address bar and take a look.

Chrome offers a lot of address-bar commands. if you want to see what they are, type Chrome://about to see a list of them.
