Speed up Google Chrome/ium in 30x times

Speed up Google Chrome/ium by enabling hardware acceleration.

You can use a switch by right-clicking your Chrome/ium shortcut, and appending them to the Target box with a double-dash first.
Just add this flags:
C:\Users\Troy\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --enable-accelerated-compositing --enable-gpu-rendering --enable-video-layering --enable-webgl --enable-accelerated-2d-canvas --enable-fastback

I couldn't get it to work in the 6.0.472.41 beta using your example. Looks like the dashes got changed by blogger. Even after fixing them it still did not show any improvement on the Psychedelic Browsing test.

I tried the test again using the Google Chrome Canary build (currently 7.0.500.1), and it was about twice as fast, so it looks like hardware acceleration is working on the nightly builds.

Yes, that's it. GPU rendering acceleration on new Chrome branch.
