谷歌浏览器chrome/chromium命令行参数

在ubuntu服务器里安装谷歌浏览器,发现里面的代理设置没有实现,需要安装代理插件。但插件的加载需要过程,没有系统自动设置好用。

但代理的设置可以使用命令行参数实现的,不仅代理,还有很多其它功能也可以通过命令参数实现,比如修改浏览器user agent:

google-chrome --proxy-server="socks5://127.0.0.1:9999" https://www.google.com --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/84.0.4147.89 Safari/537.36"

下面是完整的谷歌浏览器chrome或chromium的命令行参数列表:

 

Condition Explanation
–/prefetch:1[1] /prefetch:# arguments to use when launching various process types. It has been observed that when file reads are consistent for 3 process launches with the same /prefetch:# argument, the Windows prefetcher starts issuing reads in batch at process launch. Because reads depend on the process type, the prefetcher wouldn’t be able to observe consistent reads if no /prefetch:# arguments were used. Note that the browser process has no /prefetch:# argument; as such all other processes must have one in order to avoid polluting its profile. Note: # must always be in [1, 8]; otherwise it is ignored by the Windows prefetcher. ↪
–/prefetch:2[1] No description
–/prefetch:3[1] No description
–/prefetch:4[1] No description
–/prefetch:5[1] /prefetch:# arguments for the browser process launched in background mode and for the watcher process. Use profiles 5, 6 and 7 as documented on kPrefetchArgument* in content_switches.cc. ↪
–/prefetch:6[1] No description
–/prefetch:8[1] Prefetch arguments are used by the Windows prefetcher to disambiguate different execution modes (i.e. process types) of the same executable image so that different types of processes don’t trample each others’ prefetch behavior. Legal values are integers in the range [1, 8]. We reserve 8 to mean “whatever”, and this will ultimately lead to processes with /prefetch:8 having inconsistent behavior thus disabling prefetch in practice. TODO(rockot): Make it possible for embedders to override this argument on a per-service basis. ↪

–nacl-debug-mask ⊗ Uses NaCl manifest URL to choose whether NaCl program will be debugged by debug stub. Switch value format: [!]pattern1,pattern2,…,patternN. Each pattern uses the same syntax as patterns in Chrome extension manifest. The only difference is that * scheme matches all schemes instead of matching only http and https.

–passthrough ⊗ No description
–password-store ⊗ Specifies which encryption storage backend to use. Possible values are kwallet, kwallet5, gnome, gnome-keyring, gnome-libsecret, basic. Any other value will lead to Chrome detecting the best backend automatically. TODO(crbug.com/571003): Once PasswordStore no longer uses the Keyring or KWallet for storing passwords, rename this flag to stop referencing passwords. Do not rename it sooner, though; developers and testers might rely on it keeping large amounts of testing passwords out of their Keyrings or KWallets. ↪

We default to using a renderer process for each site instance (i.e., group of pages from the same registered domain with script connections to each other). TODO(creis): This flag is currently a no-op. We should refactor it to avoid “unnecessary” process swaps for cross-site navigations but still swap when needed for security (e.g., isolated origins). ↪

–profiling-file ⊗ Specifies a location for profiling output. This will only work if chrome has been built with the gyp variable profiling=1 or gn arg enable_profiling=true. {pid} if present will be replaced by the pid of the process. {count} if present will be incremented each time a profile is generated for this process. The default is chrome-profile-{pid} for the browser and test-profile-{pid} for tests. ↪

–simulate-upgrade ⊗ Simulates an update being available. ↪
–single-process ⊗ Runs the renderer and plugins in the same process as the browser ↪
–site-per-process ⊗ Enforces a one-site-per-process security policy: * Each renderer process, for its whole lifetime, is dedicated to rendering pages for just one site. * Thus, pages from different sites are never in the same process. * A renderer process’s access rights are restricted based on its site. * All cross-site navigations force process swaps. * <iframe>s are rendered out-of-process whenever the src= is cross-site. More details here: – https://www.chromium.org/developers/design-documents/site-isolation – https://www.chromium.org/developers/design-documents/process-models – The class comment in site_instance.h, listing the supported process models. IMPORTANT: this isn’t to be confused with –process-per-site (which is about process consolidation, not isolation). You probably want this one. ↪

–sync-deferred-startup-timeout-seconds ⊗ Allows overriding the deferred init fallback timeout. ↪
–sync-disable-deferred-startup ⊗ Enables deferring sync backend initialization until user initiated changes occur. ↪
–sync-enable-get-update-before-commits ⊗ TODO(crbug.com/657130): Sync integration tests depend on the precommit get updates because invalidations aren’t working for them. Therefore, they pass the command line switch to enable this feature. Once sync integrations test support invalidation, this should be removed. Enables feature to perform GetUpdate requests before every commit. ↪

–tether-host-scans-ignore-wired-connections ⊗ Tells the Chromebook to scan for a tethering host even if there is already a wired connection. This allows end-to-end tests to be deployed over ethernet without that connection preventing scans and thereby blocking the testing of cases with no preexisting connection. Should be used only for testing. ↪
–tether-stub ⊗ Overrides Tether with stub service. Provide integer arguments for the number of fake networks desired, e.g. ‘tether-stub=2’. ↪
–third-party-doodle-url ⊗ Overrides the Doodle URL to use for third-party search engines. Testing? Try: https://www.gstatic.com/chrome/ntp/doodle_test/third_party_simple.json https://www.gstatic.com/chrome/ntp/doodle_test/third_party_animated.json ↪

–touch_view ⊗ No description
–trace-config-file ⊗ Causes TRACE_EVENT flags to be recorded from startup. This flag will be ignored if –trace-startup or –trace-shutdown is provided. ↪
–trace-startup ⊗ Causes TRACE_EVENT flags to be recorded from startup. Optionally, can specify the specific trace categories to include (e.g. –trace-startup=base,net) otherwise, all events are recorded. Setting this flag results in the first call to BeginTracing() to receive all trace events since startup. In Chrome, you may find –trace-startup-file and –trace-startup-duration to control the auto-saving of the trace (not supported in the base-only TraceLog component). ↪
–trace-startup-duration ⊗ Sets the time in seconds until startup tracing ends. If omitted a default of 5 seconds is used. Has no effect without –trace-startup, or if –startup-trace-file=none was supplied. ↪
–trace-startup-file ⊗ If supplied, sets the file which startup tracing will be stored into, if omitted the default will be used “chrometrace.log” in the current directory. Has no effect unless –trace-startup is also supplied. Example: –trace-startup –trace-startup-file=/tmp/trace_event.log As a special case, can be set to ‘none’ – this disables automatically saving the result to a file and the first manually recorded trace will then receive all events since startup. ↪
–trace-startup-owner ⊗ Specifies the coordinator of the startup tracing session. If the legacy tracing backend is used instead of perfetto, providing this flag is not necessary. Valid values: ‘controller’, ‘devtools’, or ‘system’. Defaults to ‘controller’. If ‘controller’ is specified, the session is controlled and stopped via the TracingController (e.g. to implement the timeout). If ‘devtools’ is specified, the startup tracing session will be owned by DevTools and thus can be controlled (i.e. stopped) via the DevTools Tracing domain on the first session connected to the browser endpoint. If ‘system’ is specified, the system Perfetto service should already be tracing on a supported platform (currently only Android). Session is stopped through the normal methods for stopping system traces. ↪
–trace-startup-record-mode ⊗ If supplied, sets the tracing record mode; otherwise, the default “record-until-full” mode will be used. ↪
–trace-to-console ⊗ Sends a pretty-printed version of tracing info to the console. ↪
–trace-to-file ⊗ Sends trace events from these categories to a file. –trace-to-file on its own sends to default categories. ↪

–trusted-cdn-base-url-for-tests[8] Specifies a base URL for the trusted CDN for tests. ↪
–trusted-download-sources ⊗ Identifies a list of download sources as trusted, but only if proper group policy is set. ↪
–try-chrome-again ⊗ Experimental. Shows a dialog asking the user to try chrome. This flag is to be used only by the upgrade process. ↪
–try-supported-channel-layouts[1] Instead of always using the hardware channel layout, check if a driver supports the source channel layout. Avoids outputting empty channels and permits drivers to enable stereo to multichannel expansion. Kept behind a flag since some drivers lie about supported layouts and hang when used. See http://crbug.com/259165 for more details. ↪
–type ⊗ Indicates the type of process to run. This may be “service-manager”, “service-runner”, or any other arbitrary value supported by the embedder. ↪

–unsafely-allow-protected-media-identifier-for-domain ⊗ For automated testing of protected content, this switch allows specific domains (e.g. example.com) to skip asking the user for permission to share the protected media identifier. In this context, domain does not include the port number. User’s content settings will not be affected by enabling this switch. Reference: http://crbug.com/718608 Example: –unsafely-allow-protected-media-identifier-for-domain=a.com,b.ca ↪
–unsafely-treat-insecure-origin-as-secure ⊗ Treat given (insecure) origins as secure origins. Multiple origins can be supplied as a comma-separated list. For the definition of secure contexts, see https://w3c.github.io/webappsec-secure-contexts/ and https://www.w3.org/TR/powerful-features/#is-origin-trustworthy Example: –unsafely-treat-insecure-origin-as-secure=http://a.test,http://b.test ↪
–upgrade-token ⊗ No description
–upload-log-file ⊗ Specifies the full path to a protocol buffer log file to be uploaded. ↪
–use-angle ⊗ Select which ANGLE backend to use. Options are: default: Attempts several ANGLE renderers until one successfully initializes, varying ES support by platform. d3d9: Legacy D3D9 renderer, ES2 only. d3d11: D3D11 renderer, ES2 and ES3. warp: D3D11 renderer using software rasterization, ES2 and ES3. gl: Desktop GL renderer, ES2 and ES3. gles: GLES renderer, ES2 and ES3. ↪

–use-fake-ui-for-media-stream ⊗ Bypass the media stream infobar by selecting the default device for media streams (e.g. WebRTC). Works with –use-fake-device-for-media-stream. ↪
–use-file-for-fake-audio-capture ⊗ Play a .wav file as the microphone. Note that for WebRTC calls we’ll treat the bits as if they came from the microphone, which means you should disable audio processing (lest your audio file will play back distorted). The input file is converted to suit Chrome’s audio buses if necessary, so most sane .wav files should work. You can pass either <path> to play the file looping or <path>%noloop to stop after playing the file to completion. ↪
–use-file-for-fake-video-capture ⊗ Use an .y4m file to play as the webcam. See the comments in media/capture/video/file_video_capture_device.h for more details. ↪

–utility-sampling ⊗ No description
–utility-startup-dialog ⊗ Causes the utility process to display a dialog on launch. ↪
–v ⊗ Gives the default maximal active V-logging level; 0 is the default. Normally positive values are used for V-logging levels. ↪

–validate-input-event-stream ⊗ In debug builds, asserts that the stream of input events is valid. ↪
–validating ⊗ The command decoder names that can be passed to –use-cmd-decoder. ↪
–variations-insecure-server-url ⊗ Specifies a custom URL for the server to use as an insecure fallback when requests to |kVariationsServerURL| fail. Requests to this URL will be encrypted. ↪
–variations-override-country ⊗ Allows overriding the country used for evaluating variations. This is similar to the “Override Variations Country” entry on chrome://translate-internals, but is exposed as a command-line flag to allow testing First Run scenarios. Additionally, unlike chrome://translate-internals, the value isn’t persisted across sessions. ↪
–variations-server-url ⊗ Specifies a custom URL for the server which reports variation data to the client. Specifying this switch enables the Variations service on unofficial builds. See variations_service.cc. ↪

–video-threads ⊗ Set number of threads to use for video decoding. ↪
–video-underflow-threshold-ms ⊗ Allows clients to override the threshold for when the media renderer will declare the underflow state for the video stream when audio is present. TODO(dalecurtis): Remove once experiments for http://crbug.com/470940 finish. ↪
–virtual-time-budget ⊗ If set the system waits the specified number of virtual milliseconds before deeming the page to be ready. For determinism virtual time does not advance while there are pending network fetches (i.e no timers will fire). Once all network fetches have completed, timers fire and if the system runs out of virtual time is fastforwarded so the next timer fires immediatley, until the specified virtual time budget is exhausted. ↪
–vmodule ⊗ Gives the per-module maximal V-logging levels to override the value given by –v. E.g. “my_module=2,foo*=3” would change the logging level for all code in source files “my_module.*” and “foo*.*” (“-inl” suffixes are also disregarded for this matching). Any pattern containing a forward or backward slash will be tested against the whole pathname and not just the module. E.g., “*/foo/bar/*=2” would change the logging level for all code in source files under a “foo/bar” directory. ↪
–vsync-interval ⊗ Overrides the vsync interval used by the GPU process to refresh the display. ↪
–vulkan ⊗ No description
–vulkan-null ⊗ No description
–wait-for-debugger ⊗ Will wait for 60 seconds for a debugger to come to attach to the process. ↪
–wait-for-debugger-children ⊗ Will add kWaitForDebugger to every child processes. If a value is passed, it will be used as a filter to determine if the child process should have the kWaitForDebugger flag passed on or not. ↪
–wait-for-initial-policy-fetch-for-test ⊗ Used to tell the policy infrastructure to not let profile initialization complete until policy is manually set by a test. This is used to provide backward compatibility with a few tests that incorrectly use the synchronously-initialized login profile to run their tests – do not add new uses of this flag. ↪
–wake-on-wifi-packet ⊗ Enables wake on wifi packet feature, which wakes the device on the receipt of network packets from whitelisted sources. ↪
–wallet-service-use-sandbox ⊗ Use the sandbox Online Wallet service URL (for developer testing). ↪

–webrtc-event-log-proactive-pruning-delta ⊗ Sets the delay (in seconds) between proactive prunings of remote-bound WebRTC event logs which are pending upload. All positive values are legal. All negative values are illegal, and ignored. If set to 0, the meaning is “no proactive pruning”. ↪
–webrtc-event-log-upload-delay-ms ⊗ WebRTC event logs will only be uploaded if the conditions hold for this many milliseconds. ↪
–webrtc-event-log-upload-no-suppression ⊗ Normally, remote-bound WebRTC event logs are uploaded only when no peer connections are active. With this flag, the upload is never suppressed. ↪
–webrtc-event-logging ⊗ Enable capture and local storage of WebRTC event logs without visiting chrome://webrtc-internals. This is useful for automated testing. It accepts the path to which the local logs would be stored. Disabling is not possible without restarting the browser and relaunching without this flag. ↪
–webrtc-max-cpu-consumption-percentage ⊗ Configure the maximum CPU time percentage of a single core that can be consumed for desktop capturing. Default is 50. Set 100 to disable the throttling of the capture. ↪
–webrtc-stun-probe-trial ⊗ Renderer process parameter for WebRTC Stun probe trial to determine the interval. Please see SetupStunProbeTrial in chrome_browser_field_trials_desktop.cc for more detail. ↪
