Run Chromium with switches

Run Chromium with switches

There are command line flags (or “switches”) that Chromium accepts in order to enable particular features or modify otherwise default functionality. 

Current switches may be found at
It is important to note that using these switches is not supported or recommended. They should only be used for temporary cases and may break in the future.


To use a command line switch:


In Windows:
  1. Right click on your “Chrome” icon.
  2. Choose properties
  3. At the end of your target line, place these parameters:
    • --enable-webgl
  4. It should look like: chrome.exe --enable-webgl
On OS X:
/Applications/ --enable-webgl


On Linux:
chromium-browser --enable-webgl
