1. Override software rendering list
Overrides the built-in software rendering list and enables GPU-acceleration on unsupported system configurations. #ignore-gpu-blacklist
When is this needed?
When Chrome is not using hardware acceleration
To verify if Chrome is using hardware acceleration type in chrome://gpu/. If it says
Canvas: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
Then is clear that Chrome is not using hardware acceleration. To enable hardware acceleration
Search for "hardware" and tick the checkbox for "Use hardware acceleration..." in chrome://settings

9. TCP Fast Open Linux, Chrome OS, Android
Enable the option to send extra authentication information in the initial SYN packet for a previously connected client, allowing faster data send start. #enable-tcp-fast-open
10. Zero-copy rasterizer
Raster threads write directly to GPU memory associated with tiles. #enable-zero-copy
11. Enable native notifications. Mac, Linux
Enable support for using the native notification toasts and notification center on platforms where these are available. #enable-native-notifications - The Chrome notifications goes through the OS

This also adds commands in the tab context menu for quickly muting multiple selected tabs. #enable-tab-audio-muting - This settings is amazing. It lets me mute a tab with embedded videos so that I can continue reading without wasting time looking for the exact location of the sound source.
14. Reduce default 'referer' header granularity.
If a page hasn't set an explicit referrer policy, setting this flag will reduce the amount of information in the 'referer' header for cross-origin requests. #reduced-referrer-granularity
15. Speculative Prefetch
"Speculative Prefetch" fetches likely resources early to improve load times, based on a local database (see chrome://predictors). "Learning" means that only the database construction is enabled, "Prefetching" that learning and prefetching are enabled. #enable-resource-prefetch
16. Off-main-thread fetch for Web Workers
If enabled, the resource fetches from worker threads will not be blocked by the busy main thread. #enable-off-main-thread-fetch
