Chrome Beta for Android Adds Support for Experimental Features

Screenshot_2013-01-25-13-25-42

If tinkering in Chrome is something that warms your pants, then be sure to install the latest version of Chrome Beta for Android, as it added support for “chrome://flags” and its experimental features. In this section, you’ll see a number of items listed, some of which work in Android, others that are desktop specific. Things like disabling deferred 2D canvas, adding an FPS counter, and WebGL are some of your choices.

To access this new section, simply type in “chrome://flags” in the address bar of Chrome Beta.

    Idk perhaps a year from now chrome on android will be good,
    But I never got a tingly feeling in my loins over a browser, until I installed
    The new opera beta today, WOWZERS! On the gnex and on the nexus 10 its amazing!
    Still runs flash unlike chrome too.

    But the speed holy cow man, the fastest cleanest browser yet on android
    I HATED opera mini and opera mobile, yuck,but this new beta you gotta try it,’

    The feature I’ve been wanting the most is password sync. Looks like it might be coming soon: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=113164

      This and flash player are all that keep me using the stock browser. I know Chrome will never support flash, but I don’t need it a whole lot. I also don’t think Chrome is quite as fast as the stock browser though. You would think Google would just improve upon the stock browser and call it Chrome, but they just built two totally different browsers and stopped supported the better one =(.

        Would love for Chrome to be just like my desktop and support flash, I don’t see what the big deal is and why it can’t support it just like the desktop version does.
