How to Enable GPU Acceleration in Chrome

In the latest versions of Google’s Chrome Browser, you can enable GPU acceleration to have your video card help render web pages, which should lead to a noticeable increase in page load speeds, particularly for websites with heavy graphics and CSS use.

DISCLAIMER: This is an experimental feature, and it may change, break, or disappear at any time. This was confirmed working with Chrome 10.0.648.204 on both Mac OS X and Windows 7

Now with that out of the way, here’s how you can do it:

Step 1. In the address bar, type in “about: flags”

chrome about flags

This will get you to the “experiments” page.

Step 2. Look for the section titled “GPU Compositing”

Step 3. Click on the “Enable” link.

Step 4. Restart your browser. There’s even a convenient link at the bottom of the page.

That’s it. Now enjoy GPU powered page rendering and a faster web browsing experience!
