Some tricks from us

Log into the URL address place and type

  1. chrome://flags/

The long list of settings represents the so-called “flags” for Chrome. From here, you can change many of the settings of the Chome’s interface and its use.

Among the settings, you will find some concerning the speed of your mouse’s scroll while scrolling through the page. Sometimes it is hard to read while scrolling fast through the page. Now you can change this with the setting Smooth Scrolling.

From the long list, you will find all the audio settings for Google Chrome. Ordinarily, on the top left corner, Chrome shows a little speaker icon on all the Tabs where you are listening to something (usually a song or clip on YouTube). This allows you to quickly find the source of your sound and stop it by clicking on the icon. When activating this flag the speaker icon will function as a button for muting the sound. Of course, you can also right click and choose “Mute site”, but this is a way longer, time-consuming process. Activate your “Mute” button from Tab audio muting UI control.

2. – Chrome – when you have no Internet connection

Stop the internet. Copy and paste the following link chrome://network-error/-106 in the URL field.

Click SPACE. Play! :)
