Disabling GPU vsync in Chrome on OSX

Sometimes vsync is not desired when testing WebGL and other animations in Chrome. This is how to launch chrome without vsync in OSX, from the command line.

open -a "Google Chrome" --args --disable-gpu-vsync

Happy coding.

  1. I am experiencing strange (not so strange) bug in chrome, when you return to the tab with launched engine, the timestep gets broken. Reproduced on softWheel example at jsFiddle: perform any action in “js” panel (drive back and forth), switch to another tab for 10 seconds and return back – watch the execution is faster than normal. It becomes okay after some random time.
    Obviously, it is caused by resources distribution system, but can you suggest a quick solution for that. I am reading sources now and without “world step setup” cannot invent any.
