In part 1 of this series, we explored some of the Chrome mobile browser’s advanced settings. Today we continue getting to know more about the world’s most popular browser by checking out accessibility and site options.
To access the advanced settings, open your browser app. Tap the 3-dot menu icon at the top right and then select Settings from the drop-down menu.
Then scroll down to Advanced Settings and choose Accessibility.
From this screen, you can increase the size of the text in the browser up to 200%. You can also force pages that normally don’t permit zoom to allow you to zoom in for a better look.
Below Accessibility, you’ll see Site settings.
Tap All sites and you’ll be able to view a list of all the sites you’ve visited with Chrome.
You can then tap on the individual sites and choose to individually clear stored data.
Tap Cookies to choose whether or not sites can save and read cookie data or whether or not you want to allow third-party cookies.
Next, you can determine whether sites must get your permission before using your location data or accessing your camera or microphone.
You’ll notice here that some sites like Accuweather are permitted to use the location, but others are blocked.
Other options include allowing syncing in the background and allowing Google Translate to automatically translate websites.
If you turn Data Saver on , Chrome will use Google servers to compress the pages you visit before you download them.
And that’s it! We’ve finally made it through all of Chrome mobile’s Settings and lived to tell the tale.
I hope you feel a little more comfortable with your browser now. Happy Interwebbing!
