Chrome Keeps Tearing While Browsing (Fix)

Thu Jul 12, 2018 2:00 pm

Your screen keeps tearing (for instance when you switch between tabs, or when scrolling up or down pages), then try this.

Go to chrome://flags

Then enable Override software rendering list.

Too add additional smooth-scroll effect to Chrome, install a Chrome addon named SmoothScroll

A lot more depends on which Desktop Environment, compositor, graphics card and drivers that you are using.
Also chrome since version 49 has built in smooth scrolling, no need for that extension.

The tearing (or crashing of chrome) was a bug ... - you should have at least
Version 69.0.3497.100 (Official Build) (64-Bit) of Chrome.

Chrome update with help of here :

(but I dont know if github-Link there is actual - I think there is a more actual github link than written ... )
