To do this, you first need to download the ChromeCustomizations APK file and then copy to /system/app/ChromeCustomizations.

  1. Download pages when you are offline

If you now own a modern version of Chrome, you can download a webpage even you are offline. This is a great feature for those who have a poor internet connection.
