Some special google chrome browser url:
Suppresses hang monitor dialogs in renderer processes.
Completely disables UMA metrics system.
Disables only the sending of metrics reports. 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.
Causes the browser process to throw an assertion on startup.
Causes the renderer process to throw an assertion on launch.
Causes the browser process to crash on startup.
Causes the renderer process to crash on launch.
Causes the renderer process to display a dialog on launch.
Causes the plugin process to display a dialog on launch.
Causes the test shell process to display a dialog on launch.
Specifies a command that should be used to launch the plugin process. Useful for running the plugin process through purify or quantify. Ex:
The value of this switch tells the child process which IPC channel the browser expects to use to communicate with it.
The value of this switch tells the app to listen for and broadcast testing-related messages on IPC channel with the given ID.
The value of this switch specifies which page will be displayed in newly-opened tabs. We need this for testing purposes so that the UI tests don’t depend on what comes up for http://google.com.
When this switch is present, the browser will throw up a dialog box asking the user to start a renderer process independently rather than launching the renderer itself. (This is useful for debugging.)
Causes the process to run as renderer instead of as browser.
Path to the exe to run for the renderer subprocess
Causes the process to run as plugin host
Runs the renderer and plugins in the same process as the browser
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).
Runs a single process for each site (i.e., group of pages from the same registered domain) the user visits. 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).
Runs plugins inside the renderer process
Runs the renderer outside the sandbox.
Runs the plugin processes inside the sandbox.
Excludes these plugins from the plugin sandbox.
This is a comma separated list of plugin dlls name and activex clsid.
Runs the security test for the sandbox.
Specifies the user data directory, which is where the browser will look for all of its state.
Specifies that the associated value should be launched in „application“ mode.
Specifies the file that should be uploaded to the provided application. This switch is expected to be used with –app option.
Specifies if the dom_automation_controller_ needs to be bound in the renderer. This binding happens on per-frame basis and hence can potentially be a performance bottleneck. One should only enable it when automating dom based tests.
Tells the plugin process the path of the plugin to load
Specifies the flags passed to JS engine
The GeoID we should use. This is normally obtained from the operating system during first run and cached in the preferences afterwards. This is a numeric value; see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms776390.aspx .
The language file that we want to try to open. Of the form language[-country] where language is the 2 letter code from ISO-639.
Will add kDebugOnStart 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 kDebugOnStart flag passed on or not.
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.
Will filter log messages to show only the messages that are prefixed with the specified value
Force logging to be enabled. Logging is disabled by default in release builds.
Force logging to be disabled. Logging is enabled by default in debug builds.
Sets the minimum log level. Valid values are from 0 to 3: INFO = 0, WARNING = 1, LOG_ERROR = 2, LOG_FATAL = 3.
Dump any accumualted histograms to the log when browser terminates (requires logging to be enabled to really do anything). Used by developers and test scripts.
enable remote debug / automation shell on the specified port
Runs un-installation steps that were done by chrome first-run.
Number of entries to show in the omnibox popup.
The value of this switch tells the app to listen for and broadcast automation-related messages on IPC channel with the given ID.
Indicates the last session should be restored on startup. This overrides the preferences value and is primarily intended for testing.
Chrome supports a playback and record mode. Record mode saves *everything* to the cache. Playback mode reads data exclusively from the cache. This allows us to record a session into the cache and then replay it at will.
Don’t record/playback events when using record & playback.
Make Windows happy by allowing it to show „Enable access to this program“ checkbox in Add/Remove Programs->Set Program Access and Defaults. This only shows an error box because the only way to hide Chrome is by uninstalling it.
Make Chrome default browser
Use a specified proxy server, overrides system settings. This switch only affects HTTP and HTTPS requests.
Chrome will support prefetching of DNS information. Until this becomes the default, we’ll provide a command line switch.
Enables support to debug printing subsystem.
Allow initialization of all activex controls. This is only to help website developers test their controls to see if they are compatible in Chrome. Note there’s a duplicate value in activex_shared.cc (to avoid dependency on chrome module). Please change both locations at the same time.
Browser flag to disable the web inspector for all renderers.
Enable web inspector for all windows, even if they’re part of the browser. Allows us to use our dev tools to debug browser windows itself.
Used to set the value of SessionRestore::num_tabs_to_load_. See session_restore.h for details. const wchar_t kTabCountToLoadOnSessionRestore =
Enable dynamic loading of the Memory Profiler DLL, which will trace all memory allocations during the run.
Configure Chrome’s memory model. Does chrome really need multiple memory models? No. But we get a lot
of concerns from individuals about how the changes work on *their* system, and we need to be able to experiment with a few choices.
By default, cookies are not allowed on file://. They are needed in for testing, for example page cycler and layout tests. See bug 1157243.
Start the browser maximized, regardless of any previous settings. TODO(pjohnson): Remove this once bug 1137420 is fixed. We are using this as a workaround for not being able to use moveTo and resizeTo on a
Spawn threads to watch for excessive delays in specified message loops. User should set breakpoints on Alarm() to examine problematic thread. Usage: -enable-watchdog=[ui][io]
Order of the listed sub-arguments does not matter.
Display the First Run experience when the browser is started, regardless of whether or not it’s actually the first run.
Enable histograming of tasks served by MessageLoop. See about:histograms/Loop for results, which show frequency of messages on each thread, including APC count, object signalling count, etc.
Perform importing from another browser. The value associated with this setting encodes the target browser and what items to import.
Change the DCHECKS to dump memory and continue instead of crashing. This is valid only in Release mode when –enable-dcheck is specified.
Normally when the user attempts to navigate to a page that was the result of a post we prompt to make sure they want to. This switch may be used to disable that check. This switch is used during automated testing.
Disable pop-up blocking.
Prevent Java from running.
Prevent plugins from running.
Prevent images from loading.
Use the low fragmentation heap for the CRT.
Debug only switch to specify which gears plugin dll to load.
Switch to load Gears in the renderer process.
Enable new HTTP stack.
