Want to know about Chrome URLs and their purposes? Here is the list of Chrome URLs with their uses.

No doubt, Google Chrome is the best and most popular browser in the market with a 63.38% browser market share worldwide. Most people use it because it is a fast, secure, and simple browser and comes with Google’s smart built-ins.

However, its inbuilt functionality is enough for a normal user, but you can increase its functionality by installing and using apps and extensions. It offers Chrome Web Store where you can find extensions, apps, and themes for the browser. Both free and paid items are available in the Store. Apps and extensions make web pages more useful because you can add more features.

Well, Google added new features to Chrome regularly to improve browsing performance and experience. It has plenty of hidden features that normal users can’t find from the settings.

I’ve also shared about Chrome Flags which are hidden experimental features. You can use its beta version to preview and use upcoming features before the official release.

Well, after Chrome Flags, Chrome URLs are another from where you can access its hidden features. Before starting, you should know about Chrome URLs.

What are Chrome URLs?

Chrome URLs are internal pages of the browser that allow access to browser information, hidden features, and internal web pages that give information about the browser’s internals.

Mostly all web browsers offer internal URLs to access normal and advanced features. So, in Chrome, you can access and use internal pages for different purposes.

The webpages offered in URLs are for normal, advanced, and developer users.

Normal users can open basic features (like history, downloads, bookmarks, extensions, settings, etc.) of the browser directly by using URLs. Advanced users can get hidden features and the browser’s detailed information to fix/troubleshoot some issues. Similarly, some pages are available for debugging purposes for developers.

How to Access and Use Chrome URLs?

Well, Chrome URLs are started with chrome:// (followed by word) and you can open the page by typing the URL in the address bar (Omnibox).

There are more than 80 URLs available in the Chrome browser. All URLs are unique and it’s hard to remember all links.

Chrome browser provides the menu or list of all available URLs. However, the purpose and the use aren’t mentioned on the page.

But, you can see the list by typing chrome://chrome-urls in the address bar. Alternatively, you can open the list by typing chrome://about.
