Fix Chrome Black Screen on Ubuntu

I've been getting a full black screen on my external monitor on many pages in Google Chrome on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS running GNOME. The solution to this problem is to launch chrome with the --use-gl=angle flag, like so:

google-chrome --use-gl=angle

You can also edit the google-chrome.desktop file in /usr/share/applications so Chrome always launches with this flag.

Custom Chrome Search for WorkFlowy

To add a custom search engine to the Chrome omnibar to search WorkFlowy globally:

  1. Open Chrome settings and search for "Manage search engines"
  2. Add a new search engine with your keyword of choice (I use just "w")
  3. For the query string, put https://workflowy.com/#/?q=%s
  4. Now you can enter the keyword into the omnibox, hit tab, and enter your search query
