I want to change the default timeout in Chrome. In Firefox I can set the value of
about:config - but how can I do that in Chrome?
You can't. Google has been ignoring requests to implement this feature for over six years, so I wouldn't hold your breath.
I dealt with this issue by editing the registry. I think the registry affects not only IE but also Chrome in Windows 10. I tried extend time-out. then I can extend it and max time-out is about 7Hrs in my case.

Locate and then click the following key in the registry:

KeepAliveTimeout, and then press Enter.
On the Edit menu, click Modify.
Type the appropriate time-out value (in milliseconds), and then click OK. For example, to set the time-out value to two minutes, type
Make another DWORD value
ServerInfoTimeout and set it to the same value.
