NAME

google-chrome - the web browser from Google

 

SYNOPSIS

google-chrome [OPTION] [PATH|URL]

 

DESCRIPTION

See the Google Chrome help center for help on using the browser.
<http://www.google.com/support/chrome/>

This manpage only describes invocation, environment, and arguments.

 

OPTIONS

Google Chrome has hundreds of undocumented command-line flags that are added and removed at the whim of the developers. Here, we document relatively stable flags.
--user-data-dir=DIR
Specifies the directory that user data (your "profile") is kept in. Defaults to ~/.config/google-chrome/Default . Separate instances of Google Chrome must use separate user data directories; repeated invocations of google-chrome will reuse an existing process for a given user data directory.

--app=URL
Runs URL in "app mode": with no browser toolbars.

--proxy-server=host:port
Specify the HTTP/HTTPS proxy server. Overrides any environment variables or settings picked via the options dialog.

--no-proxy-server
Disables the proxy server. Overrides any environment variables or settings picked via the options dialog.

--proxy-auto-detect
Autodetect proxy configuration. Overrides any environment variables or settings picked via the options dialog.

--proxy-pac-url=URL
Specify proxy autoconfiguration URL. Overrides any environment variables or settings picked via the options dialog.

As a GTK+ app, Google Chrome also obeys GTK+ command-line flags, such as --display. See the GTK documentation for more:

<http://library.gnome.org/devel/gtk/stable/gtk-running.html> <http://library.gnome.org/devel/gtk/stable/gtk-x11.html>

 

ENVIRONMENT

Google Chrome obeys the following environment variables:

all_proxy
Shorthand for specifying all of http_proxy, https_proxy, ftp_proxy

http_proxy, https_proxy, ftp_proxy
The proxy servers used for HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP. Note: because Gnome/KDE proxy settings may propagate into these variables in some terminals, this variable is ignored (in preference for actual system proxy settings) when running under Gnome or KDE. Use the command-line flags to set these when you want to force their values.

auto_proxy
Specify proxy autoconfiguration. Defined and empty autodetects; otherwise, it should be an autoconfig URL. But see above note about Gnome/KDE.

 

FILES

~/.config/google-chrome
Default directory for configuration data.

~/.cache/google-chrome
Default directory for cache data. (Why? See <http://standards.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/latest/> .)
