  • bloddy good work VISHAL , i get this kind of news from you first . thanks a milion .......

  • Thanx ...

  • In latest Chrome, if you guys are getting this message:

    Java(TM) was blocked because it is out of date

    Then add this line in Chrome's shortcut after chrome.exe:


    When you need Java next time this message does not appear =D

  • VG, where is chrome's cache dir? and can it be relocated?. u r the man

  • VG

    ^^ Chrome cache is stored in following location:

    AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

    Copy above text, paste in RUN and press Enter. It'll open the folder.

    To relocate or change cache location, you can use "--disk-cache-dir" parameter. Just add it at the end of the text present in Target textbox of Chrome's shortcut Properties:


  • Little tweak for a Chrome shortcut again :D


    That will update your extensions automatically so you don't have to always manually check it.

    PS: 3600 indicates 3600 seconds which is 1 hour, so it'll check updates 24 times a day ;) I recommend that you calculate a proper update frequency for slower connections.

  • Remove scrollbars in Chrome and Chromium:


    Navigate here:

    C:\Users\#Username#\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Default\User StyleSheets


    Open Custom.css file in notepad


    Copy/paste this line in it:

    ::-webkit-scrollbar { display:none; }


    Hit save and reload your current webpage or restart your browser, done =)

  • Chrome 28 new feature:

    Added small context menu and Chrome menu.


  • Chrome now has "Search Google for this image" item in context menu when you right click any picture.

  • For some reason, I get a thin black bar along the bottom of the window when maximized (Windows XP and Windows 8) since updating to Chrome 31.

  • ^^ I got the same problem. It also happening in Windows 7. Screeenshot: s8.postimg.org/nxv6p1sh1/Black_line.png

  • VG

    Its a known bug which will be fixed in next update:


  • That button which appears next to the min/max/close button is called "Enable new profile management system" and you disable it also via about:flags, just find this flag and disable it, then relaunch your browser:


  • That windows 8 mode has made chrome a browser and an os at the same time. It's amazing to see an os running inside an os...

  • I love new Windows 8 mode!

  • Looks good.But needs to fix Blurred fonts.

  • They remove "Enable Instant Extended API" from "chrome://flags" in version 33.0.1750.117 m. Are there another way to enable old style chrome new tabs, I very liked it.

  • The Metro Version Of Google Chrome is now more stable...

  • anybody else experiencing faster scrolling speed than normal on all web pages??
    it started after updating to version 34...

  • Finally, the scroll buttons are back! :D

  • I'm done with google chrome... it always pop up says "Your profile could not be opened correctly.."
    so i need to login everytime i need to sync my web browser to my google dashboard. i dont know what the problem..

  • @ Wanville,

    Not so long ago CCleaner used to mess up Chrome profile, when it didn't fully support the latest browser or when there was a bug, you can uncheck Chrome via CCleaner settings so it won't clean it and then test it.

    FYI for AskVG readers:

    Google removed up/down arrows from scrollbar yet again, this change might come to stable version also.

  • Correction:

    From 36 version of Chromium.

  • Correction #2 lol:

    Looks like I ran outdated version of Chromium, haha.

  • What is the problem with Microsoft Internet Explorer 11.0.7 having blazing speed and even more secure than all others?

    Why the Microsoft Windows Users likes Chrome and Firefox etc.?

  • updated to 34.0.1847.137

  • vg how to disable auto update of chrome ? the update registry key is not there .

  • VG

    ^^ You'll need to create the key manually.

  • Google Chrome 35.0.1916.114 Stable released.

  • Can anybody tell me which is best Chrome or Firefox, in terms of speed.

  • I want smooth scrolling like Firefox in Chrome :'(

  • @ Rahul,

    I would suggest Chromium (trunk version), because it's a open-source browser and in my opinion it's the fastest and most stable browser available. And Chromium does not have Google surveillance behind.

  • Chromium 37 has now built in PDF-document viewer, Chromium brought up "Chrome PDF Viewer" plug-in, you can also Enable "Enable out of process PDF" flag when plug-in runs as a seperate process.

  • In Chrome 35 I can't open magnet link of utorrent or any link using external software like sopcast, acestream...
    Can anybody show me how to fix it?

  • dude,chrome 35 doesnt recognize magnet links,you gotta put up a solution.i tried regedit,editing state file in chrome application data folder.nothing works.

    would be cool if you posted it.

  • Google Chrome gets 64-bit Windows Canary and Dev channel support:


  • askvg,in the present version of chrome[35],extensions from third party sources are automatically disabled since they are not from google chrome store.It would be great if you could mess with this thing and say if there's any workaround to make the third party extensions work in chrome!
    thanks :)

  • Google Chrome 36.0.1985.125 Stable released.

  • chrome canary 64 bit offline installer???

  • After updating to Chrome version 36, I experienced a terribly annoying lag when typing anything. The solution was to turn off hardware acceleration. Go to "Settings", then click on "Show advanced settings..." at the bottom of the "Settings" screen. Scroll down to the "System" section. The second item in that section is "Use hardware acceleration when available." Uncheck that box. Worked for me!

    I got this solution from a comment by Leo M in the comment section of this blog post.

  • I am getting java script issues after trying to log in to a site from work. Chrome won't let me type --allow-outdated-plugins at the end

  • Thanks for this update.

    Which one either Firefox or IE11 do you think is better than Google Chrome?

  • After updating to version 37 I have a problem with pop-ups that will be blocked. In the settings the option is configured that all the pop-ups will be allowed, but still will the pop-up be blocked.

  • Creating a x64 version of Chrome was a great move. I wish Firefox developers would create a stable version of 64-bit browser too.

  • Thanks a ton guys (esp. ulupoi & Leo). Google Chrome 37.0.2062.102 m had slowed terribly for me literally overnight. I tried installing different versions including Chromium too but with the same result. Finally I disabled "Use hardware acceleration when available" and it was heaven again. Thanks again :-)

  • Ooh...yeah....

    Google Chrome x64 is now available....but the offline installer (for all user account) is installing the 32 bit version....I have to use the online installer to install the latest 64 bit version....and Its more faster, safer and stable.

    Firefox will never release a 64 bit version.....Hence chrome is the best in the world ! :p

  • @NDJ give Cyberfox 64 a spin...same Mozilla code, and oh, quite snappy! Been using this as my default browser for almost a year without any crashes.

  • @Ricky 64-bit version of Firefox isn‘t must have for me, I prefer using official stable version.

  • Chrome x64 offline installer:


  • Google Chrome 38.0.2125.101 Stable released.

  • Vishal,
    I am using Chrome From last 10 Months But from the last 5 weeks it had made me cry.
    It had started working very slowly and i am not able to search things instantly , I have to wait for 10 to 15 seconds before it starts responding and searches anything.
    This was not a very serious problem..but from last 2 days Chrome had started closing by itself and I am frequently seeing a page which says "Jim is Dead it could be because Chrome ran out of memory "
    I thought it might be any virus so i ran a Full system scan..but i found no virus
    Also I have re-installed my OS 3 times since last 6 weeks so it is not any OS related problem..
    I also installed adblock plus to my chrome but it was not blocking any adds at all..i am using only one extension now and that is of Internet Download Manager .
    Please help if you can :'( :(

  • VG

    ^^ Try following:


  • Dear VG:
    how the hell can I turn off "automatic blocking of malware downloads to latest Chrome build" and KILL the "Dismiss message"???
    This stink thing made me lost 3.51 GB... and much more.

    PS: Thanks for the detailed information about Windows 10...

  • VG

    ^^ Open Chrome Settings, click on "Show advanced settings" link at bottom and uncheck "Enable phishing and malware protection" option in "Privacy" section.

  • @zarCaster

    when a download is blocked, go to all downloads, select the dismissed file and click on restore
    problem solved.
    no need to disable the phishing and malware protection.

    I recommand this website more than twice a week to friends from several Forums. That's the least I should

    Thank you, thank you

  • Thanks for the reply VG and for the recommendation Peter...

  • Google Chrome 39.0.2171.65 Stable released.

  • Thanks for this update.

    However, it doesn't make a sense for having 2 applications for single internet browsing while the Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 with Enterprise mode is far better than others in my opinion.

  • VG i found chrome offline x64 standalone enterprise link is this version will be different than x64 standalone link you provided ?


  • My Chromium feature suggestion, please vote. Remember that if this feature gets added it might land on Chrome also.


  • Thank you so much.

  • I will send my comment later.

  • Thanks for the new version of Chrome.
    The file downloaded by the link given by you did not work. Hence uninstalled and visited the chrome site, downloaded the new version 40, installed and is now working fine. FYI pl.

  • How do I get this installed? Every time I run the installer is says "can not cache download installer" What does this mean? and how can I get Chrome to update?

  • Hello VG..I have upgraded my system to msi p7sn platinum series mother board and monitor to dell s2409w 24 inches, since then i load web pages very slowly and any content from the web loads very slow,my internet connection being of 10 Mbps speed works fine with other systems,what may have caused the speed to curtail,i seek your help to resolve the issue and any suggetions.
    thanking you
    with regards...

  • VG

    ^^ First try a custom DNS:

  • Hi VG! In recent Chrome updates, Google has disabled Windows Aero on Windows Vista. Is there a way to add back Aero via a third party add-on?

  • VG

    ^^ Check following:


  • Chrome 43.0.2357.65 has released....

  • Dear VG,
    recently my chrome has been updated to latest version but later i found many bugs like i printing error, whenever i start to print some pages it comes with blank page but if i save the pages with pdf then print it will print the page . Need solution man .

  • Thanks, Chrome is the best browser ever, if it can reduce the memory occupied, that would be better.

  • Today I saw your article named "Fission: Firefox Add-on to Show Progressbar in Addressbar Similar to Safari or Opera"


    I like that feature but I do not use firefox since chrome is my fav browser in both pc and mobile... Hence I find Pace4Chrome, an extension for chrome which can show the page loading progressbar just like the chrome mobile but in many ways.

    According to the developer, " Pace4Chrome is a small extension for Chrome which injects pace.js (github.hubspot.com/pace/docs/welcome/) and a stylesheet into every page visited. This shows a progress bar (per default) on every page while it loads, complementing the default Chrome spinner, which by itself, is not very telling of the overall page load progress.

    You can customise the way that pace.js acts and looks on websites using the options page on which you can pick from 15 presets and change their colors or design your own loading indicators in the advanced editing mode, allowing you to modify the CSS code directly."

    I think this extension can be useful to many chrome users like me. The link of the extension is, goo.gl/Hb8Mdb

  • VG

    ^^ If you have installed plug-ins and add-ons, try to disable them. Also try following:


  • Google Chrome 45 Stable Release Now Available....

  • Just had my first crash in this release of Chrome!! The culprit was AdBlockPro which caused the page to freeze during load then promptly crashed Chrome.

  • Had several more crashes since my last post though I got it wrong previously, this issue is caused by the same problem which haunted v.45 It's the closure of tabs which is causing the problem. Chrome forums has many new complaints about this issue.

  • Hi,

    Version 46 ..... How do I change the linked sites to RED??
