Here's how to set Chrome flags, unlocking the hidden features tucked away in Google's popular browser.

If you're a fan of Google's omnipresent browser, knowing how to set Chrome flags will unlock a bunch of hidden features that you may not have known about.

Granted, many of Chrome's hidden features aren't of much use to the everyday user, with advanced settings such as "Allow Omnibox contextual web on-focus suggestions on the SRP" likely to fly over most of our heads. 

That said, learning how to enable flags on Chrome can still come in handy, giving you the ability to unlock cool features, such as the ability to force dark mode on every website.

Given Chrome's open nature, it's possible to enable Chrome flags on Windows, macOS, Android, and even iOS.

All you need to do is enter a short URL into your Chrome browser, whether that's on a desktop or a smartphone/tablet.

It's worth noting that most Chrome flags are meant for testing purposes, so caution is advised when enabling certain ones as they could lead to "breaking" your browser — though it's easy to reset all flags to fix any problems.

As a rule of thumb, though, it's best to leave well alone the flags you're unsure of. So, if you want to check out how to enable flags in Chrome, here's our guide.
