Google Chrome is somehow a little similar with Firefox. For example, it supports extensions and then it uses About: pages. For example, in Firefox you can access a bunch of hidden settings by typing about:config on the address bar. As for Google Chrome, it has 8 About and 4 Chrome pages. Normal users don’t normally needs to access the about Pages because it contains advanced information such as network, memory, DNS, cache, histograms information.

Here are the current list of hidden Chrome and About pages for Google Chrome.
chrome://extensions – Shows extensions installed in Chrome
chrome://history – Shows web history
chrome://downloads – Shows Chrome download manager
chrome://bookmarks – Open Chrome bookmark manager
about:net-internals – Shows Chrome network information
about:memory – Shows memory usage of every tab and website loaded
about:dns – Shows DNS information
about:plugins – Shows Plugin information such as Flash and RealPlayer plugin
about:cache – Shows internet cache
about:histograms – Shows A list of histograms for Google Chrome’s internal metrics
about:version – Shows Chrome’s version number, webkit and user agent
about:credits – Shows credits and links
about:blank – Shows blank page
about:crash – Shows a crash tab

Some of the older about pages such as about:stats, about:network and about:internets which is Chrome’s humorous easter egg are removed. It still lacks of about:config which gives us access to hidden settings though… If you access the about pages very often, you might want to consider installing ChromeAccess extension which gives you quick access to all relevant about and chrome:// pages.
