Sometimes the notifications become a nuisance on the Google Chrome. It is frequently seen that almost every website abuses the notification permission and incessantly prompts a dialog box to allow notifications.
But if the Quieter Notification flag is turned on, then the notification prompts gets blocked completely. So if you are also getting disturbed with the notifications then you just have to enable this and you will be bothered no more.
But in some case you want to get notifications from specific websites, a bell icon will appear to the right of the address bar, just click on it to access notification permission options.
Faster Download Speeds:-
Parallel Downloading has been an option in the Google Chrome Flags repository for a very long time. It seems that the Google is not working on this feature to make it part of the stable channel.
Nevertheless, this flag can help you to accelerate the downloading speed by breaking the files into smaller chunks. This flag works very similar to the IDM and other download managers.
In addition to this, it allows you to increase the downloading speed along with tracking the downloads.
The only drawback is that this flag consumes a lot of data and requires a good internet speed and stability.
Nowadays, the Google Chrome has also offered the option to export passwords for some time, but if you are trying to move to the most popular browser from one of its competitors and want to import your password then this chrome flag is what you should use right after downloading the browser.
For enabling this flag you can go to “Settings -> Passwords”, tap the ‘three dots’ icon next to ‘Saved Passwords’ to see the ‘Import’ option.
Secure DNS Lookups:-
This is an awesome Chrome Flag as it has many users, including me because it has been using the HTTPS Everywhere extension while using the internet. Very similar to this the Google has also brought a flag that does the same thing so to enable this flag the Chrome will try to use a secure HTTPS connection for any website that you are visiting.
When you enable this feature then your browser may try to use a secure HTTPS connection to look up the addresses of websites and other web resources.
The Chrome actually don’t use this feature unless you use a DNS server which will support DNS over HTTPS in your network settings. You may also have to change your DNS server to Google Public DNS, Cloudflare, etc. to take advantage of this flag.
The DNS settings are mostly available in Windows and Mac Network settings but you can also change the DNS in Android settings. The Secure DNS Lookup can come very handy if you want to keep your data encrypted.
Share Webpages Using QR Codes:-
This is one of the latest google chrome flags and its only job is to make sharing of links easier.
Suppose you are using a browsing web on your desktop and you want to quickly open that link on your mobile device, and there’s no easy way to share link to your mobile device unless you are logged in the desktop Chrome and your mobile device with same Google ID. But if you enable this flag you will be able to share links in seconds.
However, this is a new flag and it is available only in the latest Canary build of Google Chrome. So, if you are using the stable version of Chrome, you may have to wait for a few weeks before you can access this flag.
This chrome flag is for those users who are tab hoarders. It allows you to you organize the tabs into visually distinct groups. You can also organize a group of tabs in a common colour so that you can easily move to that certain group of tabs.
You can also assign colors based on the nature of the tasks. If you are slowly rolled out then the latest Chrome builds a long-awaited Tab Groups feature which allows you to add a group and you can even choose to add it to a new group or an existing one.
It makes the tab management neater, by removing the pile-up of tabs that we’ve all been struggling with for years now. It’s not yet as active as certain third-party tab grouping extensions yet it’s a start.
Extension Toolbar Menu:-
Earlier, the Chrome extensions used to be inside the Settings menu, but now it’s located beside the address bar. So, if you are using too many extensions then your Chrome becomes cluttered and you can’t navigate properly.
In such cases, you can move all the extensions into a single toolbar menu. Now the address bar looks clean, more effective and has permission controls along with it. If you want a separate toolbar button and menu for extensions, then this flags provide this feature.
It also allows to manage all your installed extensions from a single location. When you are browsing through a website, this extension will bring up a large banner at the top of your screen and it will display all of the available extensions for that specific website.
