--enable-strict-site-isolation Experimentally ensures that each renderer process: 1) Only handles rendering for pages from a single site, apart from iframes. (Note that a page can reference content from multiple origins due to images, JavaScript files, etc. Cross-site iframes are also loaded in-process.) 2) Only has authority to see or use cookies for the page's top-level origin. (So if a.com iframes b.com, the b.com network request will be sent without cookies.) This is expected to break compatibility with many pages for now. Unlike the --site-per-process flag, this allows cross-site iframes, but it blocks all cookies on cross-site requests.

--trace-shutdown Causes TRACE_EVENT flags to be recorded beginning with shutdown. Optionally, can specify the specific trace categories to include (e.g. --trace-shutdown=base,net) otherwise, all events are recorded. --trace-shutdown-file can be used to control where the trace log gets stored to since there is otherwise no way to access the result.
Removed on 2014-11-14. This switch was listed in content/public/common/content_switches.cc.
--trace-shutdown-file If supplied, sets the file which shutdown tracing will be stored into, if omitted the default will be used "chrometrace.log" in the current directory. Has no effect unless --trace-shutdown is also supplied. Example: --trace-shutdown --trace-shutdown-file=/tmp/trace_event.log
Removed on 2014-11-14. This switch was listed in content/public/common/content_switches.cc.
--trace-startup Causes TRACE_EVENT flags to be recorded from startup. Optionally, can specify the specific trace categories to include (e.g. --trace-startup=base,net) otherwise, all events are recorded. Setting this flag results in the first call to BeginTracing() to receive all trace events since startup. In Chrome, you may find --trace-startup-file and --trace-startup-duration to control the auto-saving of the trace (not supported in the base-only TraceLog component).
Removed on 2014-11-14. This switch was listed in content/public/common/content_switches.cc.
--trace-startup-duration Sets the time in seconds until startup tracing ends. If omitted a default of 5 seconds is used. Has no effect without --trace-startup, or if --startup-trace-file=none was supplied.
Removed on 2014-11-14. This switch was listed in content/public/common/content_switches.cc.
--trace-startup-file If supplied, sets the file which startup tracing will be stored into, if omitted the default will be used "chrometrace.log" in the current directory. Has no effect unless --trace-startup is also supplied. Example: --trace-startup --trace-startup-file=/tmp/trace_event.log As a special case, can be set to 'none' - this disables automatically saving the result to a file and the first manually recorded trace will then receive all events since startup.
Removed on 2014-11-14. This switch was listed in content/public/common/content_switches.cc.

--try-supported-channel-layouts[4] Instead of always using the hardware channel layout, check if a driver supports the source channel layout. Avoids outputting empty channels and permits drivers to enable stereo to multichannel expansion. Kept behind a flag since some drivers lie about supported layouts and hang when used. See http://crbug.com/259165 for more details.

How to use a command line switch?

The Chromium Team has made a page on which they briefly explain how to use these switches.

Conditions

These are rather technical. While most are pretty self-explanatory, keep in mind that any condition means that a switch isn't always available.

  1. The constant ENABLE_PLUGINS must be defined.
  2. The constants OS_FREEBSD, OS_LINUX and OS_SOLARIS must be defined.
  3. The constant OS_MACOSX must be defined.
  4. The constant OS_WIN must be defined.
