    What information that you found are you referring to? – fixer1234 May 13 '19 at 9:42

Show FPS has moved to the 'Rendering' tab in the developer tools sidebar.

  1. F12
  2. In the bottom (console) section, click the 3 vertical dots
  3. Select the 'Rendering' page to add it to the bottom pane
  4. You should see 'FPS meter' 3rd item down

enter image description here


From Chrome 80, the 'FPS Meter' checkbox is the 4th item in the list. You can also access the Rendering tab from the top-right . menu

  • @Ivanzinho I'm on 86.0.4240.193 and I still see it. Are you pressing F12 first to bring up the dev sidebar? – spikey_richie Nov 11 '20 at 8:09

    Then go ask Google chromium team, I'm not responsible for them pulling the functionality! The answer was valid until Google regressed the feature. I'm not sure what you're expecting me to do here.... – spikey_richie Nov 11 '20 at 20:21

With the focus on the Dev Tools Console, press CMD+SHIFT+P (Mac, ⌘+⇧+P) or CTRL+SHIFT+P (Windows, Linux) and type "FPS" and press enter.

Doesn't get easier, and it's future-proof for whenever Chrome changes the location of the tool in the menus.
