Which means there are a great number of Chrome settings not many people are aware of, but that's what we are talking about today. Today I am gonna show you some Chrome settings that you should change right away to really enhance your chrome experience.
So I am pretty sure that all of you guys faced problems when it comes to downloading large files from Google Chrome. And i know it's super annoying. Well there is a setting which does not completely fix the issue, but it does accelerates download speed in Chrome. Well this settings is available in the chrome://flags/ page. It's a page where you will find a lot of experimental features in Chrome. You can access Chrome Flags by going to chrome://flags/ address. Once you are in the Chrome Flags page, just search for 'Parallel Downloading'. Now enable it and relaunch the Chrome. Now what this does is, it allows Chrome to create three parallel jobs to download a file and that's accelerating the download speed! I personally have noticed slightly faster downloading speeds after enabling this settings specially when downloading large files. So yeah, this is a pretty handy settings and the great thing is Parallel Downloading is available for Desktop and Mobile. So do enable it.
Automatic Tab Discarding
chrome://flags, there is an automatic tab discarding option which you should enable if your PC isn't able to handle so many Chrome tabs. As the name suggests Automatic Tab Discarding automatically kills tabs based on precedents. So there's a tab you haven't open up for a long time and your system is running out of resources, Chrome will kill it to save memory and when you go to the tab the page will be reloaded. Well I think it's a great solution for people who want to open up a lot of tabs while also wanting a smooth performance in Chrome.

Drive Files via Omnibox
chrome://flags. In the chrome://flags page, just search for Omni box Drive Suggestions and enable it. Once then, you should be able to search for Drive files through Omni box. Do note that this only searches files available in the account you have logged intro Chrome web. So yeah, keep that in mind.
Shortcuts For Extentions
Google Chrome Duet
chrome://flags; just search for the Chrome Duet. Now just enable it. Now when you relaunch Chrome (make sure do it a couple of times) you will see a new Bar at the bottom which brings everything unique. There's the Home Button, Share Button (To quickly share a Web Page), The Search Button (So you don't need to access the Address Bar at the top), the Tabs Button (To quickly switch between tabs), and the Three-Dot Menu Button. It's just the better Chrome interphase and more user friendly and you should enable it.
chrome://flags and search for Gesture Navigation. Now just enable this Flag called History Navigation With Gesture. Now once that, you can just swipe right groom the center to go backend slide left to go forward. These Gestures are pretty intuitive because if you have a Xiaomi or Huawei Phone, it doesn't interfere with a swipe from the edge back Gesture. So yeah, it's pretty cool.
Functional Tab Switcher
chrome://flags, but if you want a more functional tab switcher, there's the Accessibility tab switcher (That was a lot of tab switcher). So in chrome://flags, you can just search for Accessibility Tab Switcher and enable it. Well this tab switcher might not be the most appealing, but it's certainly very functional. I mean even if you have a number of tab open, you can see them all here and switch between them. You can't do the same with the Traditional tab switcher or the new fancy horizontal tab switcher. So yeah, this is definitely moor functional.
