Greatly increase Chrome performance

Using experiments.

My Chrome version: 19.0.1084.52 (mac)

Surf to: chrome://flags/

I enabled following flags, and so far it’s still working great:

  • Threaded compositing Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS
  • GPU Accelerated SVG and CSS Filters Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS
  • HTTP Pipelining Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS
  • Built-in Asynchronous DNS Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS

Pipelining requires a somewhat more decent internet connection (as in, don’t use it while on EDGE on the train).

There are a bunch of other cool experiments to play with, and be sure to check it out after every major Chrome update.

By the way, check out this if you haven’t done so yet: chrome://chrome-urls/

Try disabling (one of) the first two.
I’ve seen it also makes bars (such as seen on, facebook, wordpress admin panel, etc) lag when there is a lot of content (such as pictures) and they don’t really stick to the top of the browser anymore.
