Google Chrome Quick Tip: Hidden Pages

Hey, it’s not only Firefox that has “hidden” pages. Google Chrome has them too. While FF has seven of these lovely giblets, Chrome has more – 14 (and counting?). Most of them provide some helpful information about things regarding your browser.

  • about:
  • about:network
  • about:stats
  • about:cache
  • about:objects
  • about:plugins
  • about:dns
  • about:version
  • about:memory
  • about:crash
  • about:ipc
  • about:histograms
  • about:histograms/Loop
  • about:internets

These ones are supposed to be there but I can’t quite figure out what they do. Some warnings say this might crash whatever web app you’re running.

  • about:hang
  • about:shorthang

I have yet to encounter the crash page so accessing about:crash allowed me to see it with my own eyes. Since the other pages are for geeks and uber power users, Too bad there ain’t no cryptic messages like a passage from the “Book of Google” or something and it doesn’t have an in-depth configuration page like Firefox’s about:config. I want one for Chrome!
