Enabling Google Chrome FPS (Frames Per Second) Display

There is a hidden feature in Google Chrome that displays the FPS and GPU memory utilization of the browser.

To turn it on, go to the page “about:flags” but without the quotes.

Find the flag “FPS Counter” and enable it.  In the following image it has already been enabled.

Restart chrome with the button at the bottom of the page, which seems to be faster than just closing the browser and restarting it.

This is what the FPS display looks like.

The FPS counter is in the upper right.  Here is a closeup.

Now, does it make any sense?  In other words, are the numbers accurate.  Its hard to tell, but they are not obviously wrong.  I plan to use this feature for all my WebGL development.
