Chrome Command Line Switches

by Chrome Blog on September 15, 2008

Google Chrome has a number of command line switches which change the behavior of Chrome, some of these switches can be turned on/off in the regular settings menu such as “dns-prefetch-disable” however others cannot.

To launch and use the switches, you append the switch name when calling Chrome on launch like:

“…..\Application\chrome.exe” –crash-test

Which would obviously execute the crash test function.

Hello guys
I am trying to figure out a run command to open chrome with a specific user. I have four google accounts that I need to access, and would find it useful to have a run command.

What doesnt work is
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” –profile-directory=”Profile 1″

Id appreciate the help. Thanks,
Fred.

why hasn’t google cleared up this chrome bullshit yet, “confirm form resubmission”?

7 Terry 05.15.15 at 8:48 am

“Confirm form resubmission” means that the browser is about to submit the same information over again. Probably not what you want if you are buying something (unless you need two of whatever it was).

On the other hand, it would be nice to have the back button simply show the state of the previous web page from cache without resubmitting anything, and have the “confirm resubmission” warning come up only if the “submit” button is clicked again.

Now, if “confirm resubmission” simply means that you are about to see the previous page where you MIGHT be able click the back button again by accident, that is not helpful. Such a warning should only show up if only if you are about to resubmit.
