    Lightbulb Ways to make Chrome even faster

    My current default chrome shorcut is: E:\chrome-win32\cmd.exe /c start /realtime E:\chrome-win32\chrome.exe -user-data-dir="E:\chrome-win32\User"

    Which loads cmd from the ramdrive, opens chrome with a realtime level, and tells it to use the user directory in the ramdrive.

    My other shortcut is pretty much just find everything you could stick after the target path and so far I have come up with: E:\chrome-win32\cmd.exe /c start /realtime E:\chrome-win32\chrome.exe -user-data-dir="E:\chrome-win32\User" -disable-popup-blocking -disable-plugins -incognito -no-sandbox -disable-images

    I obviously use the second one for testing purposes only :P.

    I am interested in what other users have found to stick in front of their shortcuts or any other way to speed up chrome thats not obvious (disable malware protection, clear history, etc). Also if anyone knows how to get all of the processes created by chrome to keep the realtime attribute I would greatly appreciate it.

    I am using Chromium but I just call it Chrome :P. The same way you have "Chrome 3.0.195.4" in your signature when that would be Chrome Beta .

    Reading through these forums I now have to add -bookmark-menu to the list.

    Actually up until a couple of hours ago it was actually a Dev channel release !!

    You should also be aware that we have had issues previously on this forum with people using Chromium ...

    As a forum you will only find support for Chrome issues here, we've previously had a lot of confusion when people using Chromium have posted problems here and we have tried to help ...

    Yeah, chromium definitely comes with with its occasional issue.

    Does anyone know what "avformat-52.dll" , "avcodec-52.dll", and "avutil.dll" are for?

    Reading through http://src.chromium.org/svn/trunk/sr...me_switches.cc I noticed some swithces that have the ability to increase the speed even more:
    // Forces the maximum disk space to be used by the disk cache, in bytes.
    const wchar_t kDiskCacheSize[] = L"disk-cache-size";

    // Forces the maximum disk space to be used by the media cache, in bytes.
    const wchar_t kMediaCacheSize[] = L"media-cache-size";

    A custom newtab page without extension hassle (for faster load on newtab)
    // Allows the new tab page resource to be loaded from a local HTML file. This
    // should be a path to the HTML file that you want to use for the new tab page.
    const wchar_t kNewTabPage[] = L"new-tab-page"


    Unrelated but useful on some sites i noticed:
    // A string used to override the default user agent with a custom one.
    const wchar_t kUserAgent[] = L"user-agent";

    That's a command line switch, like --enable-extensions.
    The comment over the code says its means to override the default user agent ( i.e. to pretend to be internet explorer or firefox )
