Google Chrome is the world's most popular web browser and has over 1 billion monthly active users. The Google's web browser is unique in its own way and has some interesting and helpful features that no other browser has, including a small game. Google Chrome has certain tricks and features up its sleeve.

Google Chrome's Task Manager

There is a task manager for managing each and every task in Chrome. Just like Windows Task Manager, the Chrome's task manager shows which tabs are consuming more memory and CPU. The task manager can be accessed by pressing Shift + Esc.

Using Chrome as a notepad

For saving a quick note, Google Chrome can be used as a handy notepad. Just type "data:text/html, " into the URL bar and press enter. The current Chrome tab will turn into a notepad and the work can be typed and saved in there.

Tweaking the Chrome's settings

Just like Firefox, Chrome also has an internal page which can tweek its settings. Chrome://flags is a page containing numerous editable settings to tweek the functionality of the browser. A browser restart is required to apply the changes and the user can use 'reset all to default option' if anything goes wrong with the settings.

  • Enable Resume Downloads: This setting will give you the ability to resume downloads that might have been interrupted unexpectedly.
  • Enable Password Generation: Chrome can suggest complex passwords (via a key icon) whenever it detects that the user is on a signup page.
  • Save Passwords Automatically: Enabling this feature Chrome can save passwords automatically without even a prompt. This feature can come in handy if the user wants to save every password when he/she logs in into a website.
  • Enable Spell Correction: Chrome can alter while the user is typing by enabling automatic spelling correction.
  • Easy Scrolling: Chrome OS comes with a feature that performs behind-the-scenes to help the pages being scrolled smooth easily from top to bottom. This feature can help the pages flow even when the system is struggling.
