Chrome Hacks

Chrome is a fantastic browser and has so many hacks that if we set to explore it can take a long time to explore them. I have shared a few of my favorites here

Add the following command line switches

Go to “Properties” of Chrome.
Go to “Target” box and add your –command-line-switch-of-choice after “C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe”

# Single Process : All open tabs run in a single process, thus freeing up memory for other applications.
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” –single-process

# Add Memory Purge button to Chrome’s Task Manager
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” –purge-memory-button

Launch Website as App
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” –app=

Specify the initial window position: –window-position=x,y
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” –window-position

Specify the initial window size: –window-size=w,h
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” –window-size
Tip# : You can get your current browser window size from BrowserSize

QuickTabs for Chrome


One of the fastest tab switching add-on i used for Chrome. I am a lot used to the CTRL+P shortcut in sublime text to open files i have assigned that to trigger QuickTabs extension in Chrome and it works great for my own productivity. Only if the dev could provide an option to make the menu popup in the top center of the screen rather than on the top right edge of the screen it would be great.

Sync OneTab to GoogleDrive DropBox

Well this is more of a hack rather but it works and will consume a few seconds from your time but it works 🙂

Quick Tip for Sync 😉
For those who can wait until the devs can come up with some idea for sync.

1. Use the import and export option to export all tabs
2. Copy all the text and save it in a text file.
3. Save this text file in your dropbox, google drive
4. now this file has alll your tabs
5. now when u want your tabs at another location simply copy the contents of this file and import it using OneTab

Done 🙂

OneTab for Chrome



This is a must have extension for users who like to keep track of multiple tabs.

Also the ton of features for organizing, pinning tabs inside the one tab window is great.

Only if there was a cloud sync service where i could keep my one tabs list synced across chrome installed on multiple computers then this would have been a even more awesome.

Thumbs up devs great tool to have.


This is also available for Firefox.

I am so used to Command Palette feature in sublime that every other app that every time i hit CTRL+SHIFT+P  i just wish a command palette to popup somewhere on the screen. 😛

Thank you so much for this.

CTRL+SHIFT+P  now displays all menu options for Chrome just like SublimeText Now
