Here’s how you can use multiple Enable-Features and Disable-Features with Google Chrome.

Google Chrome is a popular web browser that has tons of hidden features. Some of the features can be enabled with flags, and some of them can be enabled or disabled with two special command line options, –enable-features and –disable-features.

Google regularly adds experimental options to the Chrome browser. Such features are hidden from causal users and exist for enthusiasts and advanced users. Experimental features allow to test something new, or change how some of the browser’s features work. Hidden options are available in all Chrome channels, i.e. you can find them in stable, beta, and canary releases.
