Have anyone tried this?

Speedup Chrome for Android


chrome://flags/#max-tiles-for-interest-area - set this to 512. Click 'relaunch'. That's all. (paste it to the address bar and go, ) (works only in Chrome). Looks like it allows for more RAM usage and eliminates the frame rate drop.


Or any other tweaks for that matter?

One of the comments on that thread points out that just typing chrome://flags into the URL bar brings up all the 'experiments' as Google calls them. I'll be having a nosey through them at the weekend.

Chrome is terrible when it comes to names: "Disable [feature name]: Enable"

You enable the setting to disable the feature. Logical.

Lol, yeah. Kind of goes along with the old group policy settings for Windows, though. "Deny Logon Locally: Enabled".

I run the beta of Chrome Mobile, and tinker with the flags often. There's usually a new one or two every couple of updates, so worth checking back regularly upon updating.

Currently I have:

 - Hyperlink auditing disabled
 - New-New Tab Page enabled
 - Show Auto-Fill Predictions enabled
 - Offline Auto-Reload Mode enabled
 - Disable Click Delay enabled
 - Fast text Autosizing enabled
 - Touch Scrolling Mode set to absorb-touchmove

OK, so the speed enhancement flags work well. But they say speed is not everything. When I read geekzone in the mobile version and if anyone sends a long link or wide photo, it changes the scrollable width. So is it possible to change some chrome flags to adjust this behaviour? So that the long links auto line break and pictures auto shrink to normal scrollable width?
