google-chromeOne of the most interesting things about Google Chrome is the amount of tricks that are well hidden in its code. What bothers me is that Google does very little to let the regular users use them. Maybe because if you don’t know how to tweak them, you will break Google Chrome with no other solution than reinstalling it. In this article I am going to write about an useful trick that lets you save any web page and website locally on your computer so that you will be able to surf it even though you are offline.  

  1. Open Chrome and in the web address bar, type: chrome://flags/#enable-offline-mode  and hit enter.
  2. Find the option that let’s Google Chrome save any web page.
  3. From the drop down menu select: Enable or Turn On.
  4. Close the browser and turn it back on. From now on Chrome will save your favorite websites locally!
  5. If something goes wrong (but it shouldn’t as it is a very simple trick) go back to point one and on the top right side of the page click the default settings button.
  6. Alternatively, if the above procedure doesn’t work because you have a more recent  (or older) version of the browser follow these other steps.
  7. In the web address bar, paste this code and hit Enter: chrome://flags
  8. In the settings page look for Enable Show Saved Copy Button and from the drop down menu select : Enable: Primary
  9. Now click the Relaunch blue button in order to restart Google Chrome.
  10. Now whenever you surf a website, Chrome will save a copy of it locally for offline surfing.
  11. Should you be offline an error page will appear on your screen (the famous error page with a tyrannosaur). On that page there will also be a Show Saved Copy button!
