111 minute read

List of Chromium Command Line Switches There are lots of command lines which can be used with the Google Chrome browser. Some change behavior of features, others are for debugging or experimenting. This page lists the available switches including their conditions and descriptions. Last automated update occurred on 2018-05-18.

Condition Explanation – ⊗ Report pseudo allocation traces. Pseudo traces are derived from currently active trace events. ↪ –/prefetch:1[1] ⊗ /prefetch:# arguments to use when launching various process types. It has been observed that when file reads are consistent for 3 process launches with the same /prefetch:# argument, the Windows prefetcher starts issuing reads in batch at process launch. Because reads depend on the process type, the prefetcher wouldn’t be able to observe consistent reads if no /prefetch:# arguments were used. Note that the browser process has no /prefetch:# argument; as such all other processes must have one in order to avoid polluting its profile. Note: # must always be in [1, 8]; otherwise it is ignored by the Windows prefetcher. ↪ –/prefetch:2[1] ⊗ No description ↪ –/prefetch:3[1] ⊗ No description ↪ –/prefetch:4[1] ⊗ No description ↪ –/prefetch:5[1] ⊗ /prefetch:# arguments for the browser process launched in background mode and for the watcher process. Use profiles 5, 6 and 7 as documented on kPrefetchArgument* in content_switches.cc. ↪ –/prefetch:6[1] ⊗ No description ↪ –/prefetch:8[1] ⊗ Prefetch arguments are used by the Windows prefetcher to disambiguate different execution modes (i.e. process types) of the same executable image so that different types of processes don’t trample each others’ prefetch behavior. Legal values are integers in the range [1, 8]. We reserve 8 to mean “whatever”, and this will ultimately lead to processes with /prefetch:8 having inconsistent behavior thus disabling prefetch in practice. TODO(rockot): Make it possible for embedders to override this argument on a per-service basis. ↪ –0 ⊗ Value of the –profiler-timing flag that will disable timing information for chrome://profiler. ↪ –? ⊗ No description ↪ –accept-resource-provider ⊗ Flag indicating that a resource provider must be set up to provide cast receiver with resources. Apps cannot start until provided resources. This flag implies –alsa-check-close-timeout=0. ↪ –account-consistency[2] ⊗ Command line flag for enabling account consistency. Default mode is disabled. Mirror is a legacy mode in which Google accounts are always addded to Chrome, and Chrome then adds them to the Google authentication cookies. Dice is a new experiment in which Chrome is aware of the accounts in the Google authentication cookies. ↪ –adaboost ⊗ No description ↪ –aec-refined-adaptive-filter ⊗ Enables a new tuning of the WebRTC Acoustic Echo Canceler (AEC). The new tuning aims at resolving two issues with the AEC: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/webrtc/issues/detail?id=5777 https://bugs.chromium.org/p/webrtc/issues/detail?id=5778 TODO(hlundin): Remove this switch when experimentation is over; crbug.com/603821. ↪ –agc-startup-min-volume ⊗ Override the default minimum starting volume of the Automatic Gain Control algorithm in WebRTC used with audio tracks from getUserMedia. The valid range is 12-255. Values outside that range will be clamped to the lowest or highest valid value inside WebRTC. TODO(tommi): Remove this switch when crbug.com/555577 is fixed. ↪ –aggressive ⊗ No description ↪ –aggressive-cache-discard ⊗ No description ↪ –aggressive-tab-discard ⊗ No description ↪ –all[3] ⊗ No description ↪ –allarticles ⊗ No description ↪ –allow-cross-origin-auth-prompt ⊗ Allows third-party content included on a page to prompt for a HTTP basic auth username/password pair. ↪ –allow-external-pages ⊗ Allow access to external pages during layout tests. ↪ –allow-failed-policy-fetch-for-test ⊗ If this flag is passed, failed policy fetches will not cause profile initialization to fail. This is useful for tests because it means that tests don’t have to mock out the policy infrastructure. ↪ –allow-file-access-from-files ⊗ By default, file:// URIs cannot read other file:// URIs. This is an override for developers who need the old behavior for testing. ↪ –allow-hidden-media-playback ⊗ Allows media playback for hidden WebContents ↪ –allow-http-background-page ⊗ Allows non-https URL for background_page for hosted apps. ↪ –allow-http-screen-capture ⊗ Allow non-secure origins to use the screen capture API and the desktopCapture extension API. ↪ –allow-insecure-localhost ⊗ Enables TLS/SSL errors on localhost to be ignored (no interstitial, no blocking of requests). ↪ –allow-legacy-extension-manifests ⊗ Allows the browser to load extensions that lack a modern manifest when that would otherwise be forbidden. ↪ –allow-loopback-in-peer-connection ⊗ Allows loopback interface to be added in network list for peer connection. ↪ –allow-nacl-crxfs-api[4] ⊗ Specifies comma-separated list of extension ids or hosts to grant access to CRX file system APIs. ↪ –allow-nacl-file-handle-api[4] ⊗ Specifies comma-separated list of extension ids or hosts to grant access to file handle APIs. ↪ –allow-nacl-socket-api[4] ⊗ Specifies comma-separated list of extension ids or hosts to grant access to TCP/UDP socket APIs. ↪ –allow-no-sandbox-job ⊗ Enables the sandboxed processes to run without a job object assigned to them. This flag is required to allow Chrome to run in RemoteApps or Citrix. This flag can reduce the security of the sandboxed processes and allow them to do certain API calls like shut down Windows or access the clipboard. Also we lose the chance to kill some processes until the outer job that owns them finishes. ↪ –allow-outdated-plugins ⊗ Don’t block outdated plugins. ↪ –allow-ra-in-dev-mode ⊗ Allows remote attestation (RA) in dev mode for testing purpose. Usually RA is disabled in dev mode because it will always fail. However, there are cases in testing where we do want to go through the permission flow even in dev mode. This can be enabled by this flag. ↪ –allow-running-insecure-content ⊗ By default, an https page cannot run JavaScript, CSS or plugins from http URLs. This provides an override to get the old insecure behavior. ↪ –allow-sandbox-debugging ⊗ Allows debugging of sandboxed processes (see zygote_main_linux.cc). ↪ –allow-silent-push ⊗ Allows Web Push notifications that do not show a notification. ↪ –alsa-check-close-timeout ⊗ Time in ms to wait before closing the PCM handle when no more mixer inputs remain.

This directly sets the latency of the output device. Latency can be calculated by multiplying the sample rate by the output buffer size. ↪ –alsa-output-device[5] ⊗ The Alsa device to use when opening an audio stream. ↪ –alsa-output-period-size ⊗ Size of the ALSA output period in frames. The period of an ALSA output device determines how many frames elapse between hardware interrupts. ↪ –alsa-output-start-threshold ⊗ How many frames need to be in the output buffer before output starts. ↪ –alsa-volume-device-name ⊗ Name of the device the volume control mixer should be opened on. Will use the same device as kAlsaOutputDevice and fall back to “default” if kAlsaOutputDevice is not supplied. ↪ –alsa-volume-element-name ⊗ Name of the simple mixer control element that the ALSA-based media library should use to control the volume. ↪ –also-emit-success-logs ⊗ Also emit full event trace logs for successful tests. ↪ –alternative ⊗ The Chrome-Proxy “exp” directive value used by data reduction proxy to receive an alternative back end implementation. ↪ –always-authorize-plugins ⊗ Prevents Chrome from requiring authorization to run certain widely installed but less commonly used plugins. ↪ –always-on ⊗ No description ↪ –always-use-complex-text ⊗ Always use the complex text path for layout tests. ↪ –alwaystrue ⊗ No description ↪ –android-fonts-path ⊗ Uses the android SkFontManager on linux.

Default is “http://clients2.google.com/cr/staging_report” for non prod. ↪ –crash-test ⊗ Causes the browser process to crash on startup. ↪ –crashpad-handler ⊗ A process type (switches::kProcessType) that indicates chrome.exe or setup.exe is being launched as crashpad_handler. This is only used on Windows. We bundle the handler into chrome.exe on Windows because there is high probability of a “new” .exe being blocked or interfered with by application firewalls, AV software, etc. On other platforms, crashpad_handler is a standalone executable. ↪ –create-browser-on-startup-for-tests ⊗ Some platforms like ChromeOS default to empty desktop. Browser tests may need to add this switch so that at least one browser instance is created on startup. TODO(nkostylev): Investigate if this switch could be removed. (http://crbug.com/148675) ↪ –create-default-gl-context ⊗ Ask the GLX driver for the default context instead of trying to get the highest version possible. ↪ –cros-gaia-api-v1 ⊗ Forces use of Chrome OS Gaia API v1. ↪ –cros-region ⊗ Forces CrOS region value. ↪ –cros-regions-mode ⊗ Control regions data load (“” is default). ↪ –crosh-command[8] ⊗ Custom crosh command. ↪ –cryptauth-http-host ⊗ Overrides the default URL for Google APIs (https://www.googleapis.com) used by CryptAuth. ↪ –custom-devtools-frontend ⊗ Specify a custom path to devtools for devtools tests ↪ –custom-launcher-page ⊗ Specifies the chrome-extension:// URL for the contents of an additional page added to the app launcher. ↪ –custom_summary[6] ⊗ Forces a custom summary to be displayed below the update menu item. ↪ –d3d-support[1] ⊗ No description ↪ –d3d11 ⊗ No description ↪ –d3d9 ⊗ No description ↪ –daemon ⊗ No description ↪ –dark_muted ⊗ No description ↪ –dark_vibrant ⊗ No description ↪ –data-path ⊗ Makes Content Shell use the given path for its data directory. ↪ –data-reduction-proxy-config-url ⊗ The URL from which to retrieve the Data Reduction Proxy configuration. ↪ –data-reduction-proxy-experiment ⊗ The name of a Data Reduction Proxy experiment to run.

It is illegal to use |kDataReductionProxy| or |kDataReductionProxyFallback| switch in conjunction with |kDataReductionProxyHttpProxies|. If the URI omits a scheme, then the proxy server scheme defaults to HTTP, and if the port is omitted then the default port for that scheme is used. E.g. “http://foo.net:80”, “http://foo.net”, “foo.net:80”, and “foo.net” are all equivalent. ↪ –data-reduction-proxy-lo-fi ⊗ The mode for Data Reduction Proxy Lo-Fi.

This parameter is ignored if user goes through login screen since user_id hash defines which profile directory to use. In case of browser restart within active session this parameter is used to pass user_id hash for primary user. ↪ –login-user ⊗ Specifies the user which is already logged in. ↪ –loopback-i2s-bits ⊗ Used to pass configuration for the I2S input to enable loopback for AEC. ↪ –loopback-i2s-bus-name ⊗ No description ↪ –loopback-i2s-channels ⊗ No description ↪ –loopback-i2s-rate-hz ⊗ No description ↪ –lso-url ⊗ No description ↪ –ltr ⊗ No description ↪ –main-frame-resizes-are-orientation-changes ⊗ Resizes of the main frame are caused by changing between landscape and portrait mode (i.e. Android) so the page should be rescaled to fit. ↪ –make-chrome-default[7] ⊗ Indicates whether Chrome should be set as the default browser during installation. ↪ –make-default-browser ⊗ Makes Chrome default browser ↪ –managed-user-id ⊗ Sets the supervised user ID for any loaded or newly created profile to the given value.

With Crashpad, the metrics client ID is distinct from the crash client ID. ↪ –metrics-recording-only ⊗ Enables the recording of metrics reports but disables reporting. In contrast to kDisableMetrics, this executes all the code that a normal client would use for reporting, except the report is dropped rather than sent to the server. This is useful for finding issues in the metrics code during UI and performance tests. ↪ –mhtml-generator-option ⊗ Sets options for MHTML generator to skip no-store resources: “skip-nostore-main” - fails to save a page if main frame is ‘no-store’ “skip-nostore-all” - also skips no-store subresources. ↪ –mirror[2] ⊗ Values for the kAccountConsistency flag. ↪ –mock ⊗ No description ↪ –mojo-local-storage ⊗ Use a Mojo-based LocalStorage implementation. ↪ –mojo-pipe-token ⊗ No description ↪ –monitoring-destination-id ⊗ Allows setting a different destination ID for connection-monitoring GCM messages.

The value of this switch is either kMus or kMash. For example, if chrome is run with ‘–mash’ then the child process representing ash is launched with the switch ‘–mus-config=mash’. ↪ –mute-audio ⊗ Mutes audio sent to the audio device so it is not audible during automated testing. ↪ –nacl-broker ⊗ Value for –type that causes the process to run as a NativeClient broker (used for launching NaCl loader processes on 64-bit Windows). ↪ –nacl-dangerous-no-sandbox-nonsfi ⊗ Disable sandbox even for non SFI mode. This is particularly unsafe as non SFI NaCl heavily relies on the seccomp sandbox. ↪ –nacl-debug-mask ⊗ Uses NaCl manifest URL to choose whether NaCl program will be debugged by debug stub. Switch value format: [!]pattern1,pattern2,…,patternN. Each pattern uses the same syntax as patterns in Chrome extension manifest. The only difference is that * scheme matches all schemes instead of matching only http and https. If the value doesn’t start with !, a program will be debugged if manifest URL matches any pattern. If the value starts with !, a program will be debugged if manifest URL does not match any pattern. ↪ –nacl-gdb ⊗ Native Client GDB debugger that will be launched automatically when needed. ↪ –nacl-gdb-script ⊗ GDB script to pass to the nacl-gdb debugger at startup. ↪ –nacl-loader ⊗ Value for –type that causes the process to run as a NativeClient loader for SFI mode. ↪ –nacl-loader-nonsfi ⊗ Value for –type that causes the process to run as a NativeClient loader for non SFI mode. ↪ –native ⊗ Report native (walk the stack) allocation traces.

Ignored interfaces will not be used for network connectivity. ↪ –network-country-iso[6] ⊗ The telephony region (ISO country code) to use in phone number detection. ↪ –network-settings-config ⊗ Enables Settings based network config in MD Settings. ↪ –new-window ⊗ Launches URL in new browser window. ↪ –no-default-browser-check ⊗ Disables the default browser check. Useful for UI/browser tests where we want to avoid having the default browser info-bar displayed. ↪ –no-experiments ⊗ Disables all experiments set on about:flags. Does not disable about:flags itself. Useful if an experiment makes chrome crash at startup: One can start chrome with –no-experiments, disable the problematic lab at about:flags and then restart chrome without this switch again. ↪ –no-first-run ⊗ Skip First Run tasks, whether or not it’s actually the First Run. Overridden by kForceFirstRun. This does not drop the First Run sentinel and thus doesn’t prevent first run from occuring the next time chrome is launched without this flag. ↪ –no-managed-user-acknowledgment-check ⊗ Disables checking whether we received an acknowledgment when registering a supervised user. Also disables the timeout during registration that waits for the ack. Useful when debugging against a server that does not support notifications. ↪ –no-network-profile-warning[1] ⊗ Whether or not the browser should warn if the profile is on a network share. This flag is only relevant for Windows currently. ↪ –no-pings ⊗ Don’t send hyperlink auditing pings ↪ –no-proxy-server ⊗ Don’t use a proxy server, always make direct connections. Overrides any other proxy server flags that are passed. ↪ –no-referrers ⊗ Don’t send HTTP-Referer headers. ↪ –no-sandbox ⊗ Disables the sandbox for all process types that are normally sandboxed. ↪ –no-service-autorun ⊗ Disables the service process from adding itself as an autorun process. This does not delete existing autorun registrations, it just prevents the service from registering a new one. ↪ –no-session-id ⊗ No description ↪ –no-startup-window ⊗ Does not automatically open a browser window on startup (used when launching Chrome for the purpose of hosting background apps). ↪ –no-user-gesture-required ⊗ Autoplay policy that does not require any user gesture. ↪ –no-wifi ⊗ Disable features that require WiFi management. ↪ –no-zygote ⊗ Disables the use of a zygote process for forking child processes. Instead, child processes will be forked and exec’d directly. Note that –no-sandbox should also be used together with this flag because the sandbox needs the zygote to work. ↪ –noerrdialogs ⊗ Suppresses all error dialogs when present. ↪ –non-material ⊗ Classic, non-material, mode for the |kTopChromeMD| switch. ↪ –non-secure ⊗ No description ↪ –non-secure-after-editing ⊗ No description ↪ –non-secure-while-incognito ⊗ No description ↪ –non-secure-while-incognito-or-editing ⊗ No description ↪ –none ⊗ No description ↪ –normal_muted ⊗ No description ↪ –normal_vibrant ⊗ No description ↪ –note-taking-app-ids ⊗ An optional comma-separated list of IDs of apps that can be used to take notes.

Set the value to ‘2’ to enable the simplified overscroll UI where a navigation arrow slides in from the side of the screen in response to the horizontal overscroll gesture. Defaults to ‘1’. ↪ –overscroll-start-threshold ⊗ Controls the value of the threshold to start horizontal overscroll relative to the default value. E.g. set the value to ‘133’ to have the overscroll start threshold be 133% of the default threshold. ↪ –ozone-dump-file ⊗ Specify location for image dumps. ↪ –ozone-platform ⊗ Specify ozone platform implementation to use. ↪ –pack-extension ⊗ Packages an extension to a .crx installable file from a given directory. ↪ –pack-extension-key ⊗ Optional PEM private key to use in signing packaged .crx. ↪ –parent-profile ⊗ Specifies the path to the user data folder for the parent profile. ↪ –parent-window ⊗ No description ↪ –passive-listeners-default ⊗ Override the default value for the ‘passive’ field in javascript addEventListener calls.

Possible values are kwallet, kwallet5, gnome, gnome-keyring, gnome-libsecret, basic. Any other value will lead to Chrome detecting the best backend automatically. TODO(crbug.com/571003): Once PasswordStore no longer uses the Keyring or KWallet for storing passwords, rename this flag to stop referencing passwords. Do not rename it sooner, though; developers and testers might rely on it keeping large amounts of testing passwords out of their Keyrings or KWallets. ↪ –permission-request-api-scope ⊗ Development flag for permission request API. This flag is needed until the API is finalized. TODO(bauerb): Remove when this flag is not needed anymore. ↪ –permission-request-api-url ⊗ Development flag for permission request API.

This mode consolidates same-site pages so that they share a single process. More details here: - http://www.chromium.org/developers/design-documents/process-models - The class comment in site_instance.h, listing the supported process models. IMPORTANT: This isn’t to be confused with –site-per-process (which is about isolation, not consolidation). You probably want the other one. ↪ –process-per-tab ⊗ Runs each set of script-connected tabs (i.e., a BrowsingInstance) in its own renderer process. We default to using a renderer process for each site instance (i.e., group of pages from the same registered domain with script connections to each other). TODO(creis): This flag is currently a no-op. We should refactor it to avoid “unnecessary” process swaps for cross-site navigations but still swap when needed for security (e.g., isolated origins). ↪ –product-version ⊗ Outputs the product version information and quit. Used as an internal api to detect the installed version of Chrome on Linux. ↪ –profile-directory ⊗ Selects directory of profile to associate with the first browser launched. ↪ –profiler-timing ⊗ Configure whether chrome://profiler will contain timing information.

The default is chrome-profile-{pid} for the browser and test-profile-{pid} for tests. ↪ –profiling-flush ⊗ Controls whether profile data is periodically flushed to a file. Normally the data gets written on exit but cases exist where chrome doesn’t exit cleanly (especially when using single-process). A time in seconds can be specified. ↪ –progress-bar-animation[6] ⊗ Specifies Android phone page loading progress bar animation. ↪ –progress-bar-completion[6] ⊗ When blink should declare a load “done” for the purpose of the progress bar. ↪ –prompt-for-external-extensions[27] ⊗ Should we prompt the user before allowing external extensions to install?

Waiting for chrome to be ready is then handled by the first read from the port, which will block until chrome is ready. No polling is needed. ↪ –remote-debugging-socket-name[6] ⊗ Enables remote debug over HTTP on the specified socket name. ↪ –remote-debugging-targets ⊗ Porvides a list of addresses to discover DevTools remote debugging targets.

Very high values for this setting can lead to high memory/resource usage or instability. ↪ –renderer-startup-dialog ⊗ Causes the renderer process to display a dialog on launch. Passing this flag also adds kNoSandbox on Windows non-official builds, since that’s needed to show a dialog. ↪ –renderer-wait-for-java-debugger[6] ⊗ Block ChildProcessMain thread of the renderer’s ChildProcessService until a Java debugger is attached. ↪ –renderpass ⊗ No description ↪ –repl ⊗ Runs a read-eval-print loop that allows the user to evaluate Javascript expressions. ↪ –report-vp9-as-an-unsupported-mime-type ⊗ Force to report VP9 as an unsupported MIME type. ↪ –require-audio-hardware-for-testing ⊗ When running tests on a system without the required hardware or libraries, this flag will cause the tests to fail. Otherwise, they silently succeed. ↪ –reset-app-list-install-state ⊗ If set, the app list will forget it has been installed on startup.

More details here: - http://www.chromium.org/developers/design-documents/site-isolation - http://www.chromium.org/developers/design-documents/process-models - The class comment in site_instance.h, listing the supported process models. IMPORTANT: this isn’t to be confused with –process-per-site (which is about process consolidation, not isolation). You probably want this one. ↪ –skip-gpu-data-loading ⊗ Skip gpu info collection, blacklist loading, and blacklist auto-update scheduling at browser startup time. Therefore, all GPU features are available, and about:gpu page shows empty content. The switch is intended only for layout tests. TODO(gab): Get rid of this switch entirely. ↪ –skip-nostore-all ⊗ No description ↪ –skip-nostore-main ⊗ No description ↪ –skip-reencoding-on-skp-capture ⊗ Skips reencoding bitmaps as PNGs when the encoded data is unavailable during SKP capture.

Optionally, can specify the specific trace categories to include (e.g. –trace-startup=base,net) otherwise, all events are recorded. Setting this flag results in the first call to BeginTracing() to receive all trace events since startup. In Chrome, you may find –trace-startup-file and –trace-startup-duration to control the auto-saving of the trace (not supported in the base-only TraceLog component). ↪ –trace-startup-duration ⊗ Sets the time in seconds until startup tracing ends. If omitted a default of 5 seconds is used. Has no effect without –trace-startup, or if –startup-trace-file=none was supplied. ↪ –trace-startup-file ⊗ If supplied, sets the file which startup tracing will be stored into, if omitted the default will be used “chrometrace.log” in the current directory. Has no effect unless –trace-startup is also supplied. Example: –trace-startup –trace-startup-file=/tmp/trace_event.log As a special case, can be set to ‘none’ - this disables automatically saving the result to a file and the first manually recorded trace will then receive all events since startup. ↪ –trace-to-console ⊗ Sends a pretty-printed version of tracing info to the console. ↪ –trace-to-file ⊗ Sends trace events from these categories to a file. –trace-to-file on its own sends to default categories. ↪ –trace-to-file-name ⊗ Specifies the file name for –trace-to-file.

This flag is to be used only by the upgrade process. ↪ –try-supported-channel-layouts[1] ⊗ Instead of always using the hardware channel layout, check if a driver supports the source channel layout. Avoids outputting empty channels and permits drivers to enable stereo to multichannel expansion. Kept behind a flag since some drivers lie about supported layouts and hang when used. See http://crbug.com/259165 for more details. ↪ –type ⊗ Indicates the type of process to run. This may be “service-manager”, “service-runner”, or any other arbitrary value supported by the embedder. ↪ –ui-disable-partial-swap ⊗ Disable partial swap which is needed for some OpenGL drivers / emulators. ↪ –ui-enable-layer-lists ⊗ No description ↪ –ui-enable-rgba-4444-textures ⊗ No description ↪ –ui-enable-zero-copy ⊗ No description ↪ –ui-prioritize-in-gpu-process ⊗ Prioritizes the UI’s command stream in the GPU process ↪ –ui-show-composited-layer-borders ⊗ No description ↪ –ui-show-fps-counter ⊗ No description ↪ –ui-show-layer-animation-bounds ⊗ No description ↪ –ui-show-paint-rects ⊗ No description ↪ –ui-show-property-changed-rects ⊗ No description ↪ –ui-show-screenspace-rects ⊗ No description ↪ –ui-show-surface-damage-rects ⊗ No description ↪ –ui-slow-animations ⊗ No description ↪ –uninstall[1] ⊗ Runs un-installation steps that were done by chrome first-run. ↪ –unlimited-storage ⊗ Overrides per-origin quota settings to unlimited storage for any apps/origins. This should be used only for testing purpose. ↪ –unsafe-pac-url ⊗ Pass the full https:// URL to PAC (Proxy Auto Config) scripts. As opposed to the default behavior which strips path and query components before passing to the PAC scripts. ↪ –unsafely-allow-protected-media-identifier-for-domain ⊗ For automated testing of protected content, this switch allows specific domains (e.g. example.com) to skip asking the user for permission to share the protected media identifier. In this context, domain does not include the port number. User’s content settings will not be affected by enabling this switch. Reference: http://crbug.com/718608 Example: –unsafely-allow-protected-media-identifier-for-domain=a.com,b.ca ↪ –unsafely-treat-insecure-origin-as-secure ⊗ Treat given (insecure) origins as secure origins. Multiple origins can be supplied. Has no effect unless –user-data-dir is also supplied. Example: –unsafely-treat-insecure-origin-as-secure=http://a.test,http://b.test –user-data-dir=/test/only/profile/dir ↪ –use-angle ⊗ Select which ANGLE backend to use.

Works with –use-fake-device-for-media-stream. ↪ –use-file-for-fake-audio-capture ⊗ Play a .wav file as the microphone. Note that for WebRTC calls we’ll treat the bits as if they came from the microphone, which means you should disable audio processing (lest your audio file will play back distorted). The input file is converted to suit Chrome’s audio buses if necessary, so most sane .wav files should work. You can pass either <path> to play the file looping or <path>%noloop to stop after playing the file to completion. ↪ –use-file-for-fake-video-capture ⊗ Use an .y4m file to play as the webcam. See the comments in media/capture/video/file_video_capture_device.h for more details. ↪ –use-first-display-as-internal ⊗ Uses the 1st display in –ash-host-window-bounds as internal display.

Useful values might be “valgrind” or “xterm -e gdb –args”. ↪ –utility-run-elevated ⊗ No description ↪ –utility-sandbox-type ⊗ Type of sandbox to apply to the utility process. Options are “none”, “network”, or “utility” (the default). ↪ –utility-startup-dialog ⊗ Causes the utility process to display a dialog on launch. ↪ –v ⊗ Gives the default maximal active V-logging level; 0 is the default. Normally positive values are used for V-logging levels. ↪ –v2-sandbox[7] ⊗ Enable the V2 sandbox during the helper executable initialization. ↪ –v2-sandbox-enabled[7] ⊗ The command line paramter indicating that the v2 sandbox is enabled. This must be different than the “v2-sandbox” flag to avoid endless re-executing. The flag tells the sandbox initialization code inside Chrome that the sandbox should already be enabled. TODO(kerrnel): Remove this once the V2 sandbox migration is complete, as processes will be assumed to run under the V2 sandbox. ↪ –v8-cache-options ⊗ Set options to cache V8 data. (off, preparse data, or code) ↪ –v8-cache-strategies-for-cache-storage ⊗ Set strategies to cache V8 data in CacheStorage. (off, normal, or aggressive) ↪ –validate-crx ⊗ Examines a .crx for validity and prints the result. ↪ –validate-input-event-stream ⊗ In debug builds, asserts that the stream of input events is valid. ↪ –variations-override-country ⊗ Allows overriding the country used for evaluating variations. This is similar to the “Override Variations Country” entry on chrome://translate-internals, but is exposed as a command-line flag to allow testing First Run scenarios. Additionally, unlike chrome://translate-internals, the value isn’t persisted across sessions. ↪ –variations-server-url ⊗ Specifies a custom URL for the server which reports variation data to the client. Specifying this switch enables the Variations service on unofficial builds. See variations_service.cc. ↪ –version ⊗ No description ↪ –video-image-texture-target ⊗ Texture target for CHROMIUM_image backed video frame textures. ↪ –video-threads ⊗ Set number of threads to use for video decoding. ↪ –video-underflow-threshold-ms ⊗ Allows clients to override the threshold for when the media renderer will declare the underflow state for the video stream when audio is present. TODO(dalecurtis): Remove once experiments for http://crbug.com/470940 finish. ↪ –virtual-time-budget ⊗ If set the system waits the specified number of virtual milliseconds before deeming the page to be ready. For determinism virtual time does not advance while there are pending network fetches (i.e no timers will fire). Once all network fetches have completed, timers fire and if the system runs out of virtual time is fastforwarded so the next timer fires immediatley, until the specified virtual time budget is exhausted. ↪ –vmodule ⊗ Gives the per-module maximal V-logging levels to override the value given by –v. E.g. “my_module=2,foo=3” would change the logging level for all code in source files “my_module.” and “foo.” (“-inl” suffixes are also disregarded for this matching). Any pattern containing a forward or backward slash will be tested against the whole pathname and not just the module. E.g., “/foo/bar/*=2” would change the logging level for all code in source files under a “foo/bar” directory. ↪ –voice-interaction-supported-locales ⊗ List of locales supported by voice interaction. ↪ –wait-for-debugger ⊗ Will wait for 60 seconds for a debugger to come to attach to the process. ↪ –wait-for-debugger-children ⊗ Will add kWaitForDebugger to every child processes. If a value is passed, it will be used as a filter to determine if the child process should have the kWaitForDebugger flag passed on or not. ↪ –wake-on-wifi-packet ⊗ Enables wake on wifi packet feature, which wakes the device on the receipt of network packets from whitelisted sources. ↪ –wallet-service-use-sandbox ⊗ Use the sandbox Online Wallet service URL (for developer testing). ↪ –watcher[1] ⊗ Causes the process to run as a watcher process. ↪ –waveout-buffers[1] ⊗ Number of buffers to use for WaveOut. ↪ –webapk-server-url[6] ⊗ Custom WebAPK server URL for the sake of testing. ↪ –webrtc-stun-probe-trial[13] ⊗ Renderer process parameter for WebRTC Stun probe trial to determine the interval. Please see SetupStunProbeTrial in chrome_browser_field_trials_desktop.cc for more detail. ↪ –webview-enable-safebrowsing-support ⊗ used to enable safebrowsing functionality in webview ↪ –webview-sandboxed-renderer ⊗ No description ↪ –whitelisted-extension-id ⊗ Adds the given extension ID to all the permission whitelists. ↪ –win-jumplist-action ⊗ Specifies which category option was clicked in the Windows Jumplist that resulted in a browser startup. ↪ –window-position ⊗ Specify the initial window position: –window-position=x,y ↪ –window-size ⊗ Sets the initial window size. Provided as string in the format “800,600”. ↪ –window-workspace ⊗ Specify the initial window workspace: –window-workspace=id ↪ –windows10-custom-titlebar[1] ⊗ Enables custom-drawing the titlebar and tabstrip background so that it’s not a garish #FFFFFF like it is by default on Windows 10. ↪ –winhttp-proxy-resolver ⊗ Uses WinHTTP to fetch and evaluate PAC scripts. Otherwise the default is to use Chromium’s network stack to fetch, and V8 to evaluate. ↪ –wm-window-animations-disabled ⊗ If present animations are disabled. ↪ –yield-between-content-script-runs ⊗ Whether to split content script injections into multiple tasks. ↪ –zygote ⊗ Causes the process to run as a renderer zygote. ↪ How to use a command line switch? The Chromium Team has made a page on which they briefly explain how to use these switches.

Conditions These are rather technical. While most are pretty self-explanatory, keep in mind that any condition means that a switch isn’t always available.
