Anything similar to "about:config" (Firefox) In Google's Chrome ?

There is no about:config at the moment.

the feature request on chromium was closed on July 22nd with the status WontFix so you'll probably have to keep bumping the original feature request or open a new request here with additional ideas or features than the previous.

Yes, and no. If by about:config, you mean "special page that lets you configure secret stuff, then it's there, and you can access it through about:flags.

If you want the complete list of pages available on Chrome, try about:about.

Nice. And not mentioned on Google's old blog post. –  Arjan Jan 30 '11 at 12:30

From Google Support, Chrome Help, on July 10, 2009.

Question: Is there an about:config

No, currently there is no about:config page...
But you can vote for
http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=16362
and hope it will get implemented sometimes.

Using about:about converts to chrome://about which consists of ALL settings pages available for Chrome:

chrome://about page

Confirmed; working on Chrome 23.0.1271.95. This should be the accepted answer. –  amiregelz Dec 10 '12 at 11:23

There is chrome://settings.

It is not a table, as about:config in Firefox, it's tabbed, with tree structure. Every settings page has a URI (chrome://settings/advanced) and even individual options could be linked – for now only using search and clicking on a section of interest (chrome://settings/search#sync).

Oddly enough, tree structure is not represented in URI (chrome://settings/cookies).

Use About:About to access all hidden pages in Chrome. –  Moab Mar 22 '11 at 14:42
    
this is, as of the current date, the same as clicking the wrench icon to get to standard settings. –  Jeff Atwood Sep 1 '12 at 6:21

There's nothing that's exactly identical to Firefox's about:config, but I'm surprised that nobody's mentioned Chrome's about:flags feature. You can use this to turn on/off experimental browser features. It doesn't give you the granularity that Firefox provides, but it can allow you to do some cool things.
