There's a couple new switches being worked on in the Chromium nightly builds that (hopefully) will make it to Chrome soonish.

--enable-gpu-rendering
--enable-video-layering

Seems hardware acceleration will be in Chrome shortly. Yey!

--new-wrench-menu

Also in the works is an unified app wrench where they move the current page icon and menu to the right of the Go button into the wrench. One icon less will make it even more compact. Only available in Linux builds at the moment though.


Hope this isn't old news.

Is this already enabled in Chromium or do you have to enable it somehow?

Do I paste both of those in the shrotcut?

--new-wrench-menu doesn't seem to work.

Will be nice when this becomes enabled by default.

Just want to note, for the new unified wrench. Even though they have not said anything about it. It works on Windows. In the latest Chromium build I added "--new-wrench-menu". And it actually works and is pretty neat :D

Is there a way to determine if video layering and gpu acceleration are actually enabled when you add the flag?

You know, if a browser got a new feature, it is a custom to post benchmarks, pictures ....

So, where are the pics? Where are the benchmarks?
