I'm trying to load my own page, by default, at the startup of Chrome browser. I've read the some posts about Chromium Command Line Switches, but failed to find such a switch to specify a url, any idea? Thanks.

There's no switch, it's the default parameter.

/path/to/chrome "http://stackoverflow.com"

It should also work just as chrome "http://www.superuser.com assuming your installed properly added chrome to the environment variables. –  Jared Tritsch Nov 20 '12 at 12:04
    
I found --instant-url work –  fifth Nov 22 '12 at 8:49

[options] are optional because they are in square brackets, so is a [url]. Meaning you can start chrome without specifying any options or a url, or you can give it a url to open.

use man google-chrome to read about the browser.

google-chrome(1)                  USER COMMANDS                  google-chrome(1)



NAME
       google-chrome - the web browser from Google


SYNOPSIS
       google-chrome [OPTION] [PATH|URL]


DESCRIPTION
       See the Google Chrome help center for help on using the browser.

              

       This manpage only describes invocation, environment, and arguments.
