Fix Chrome Flickering on Android 4.3 on Samsung Galaxy S4

I recently upgraded my Samsung Galaxy S4 mobile phone to Android 4.3 and immediately noticed issues with Chrome.

It would flicker, and show a blank, black screen when going into the “exploded tab” view that shows you all your open tabs. Selecting a tab, and scrolling within a window, would fix the issue for that tab, but as soon as you went to open another tab, the problem would be back.

It’s not a major problem, just really annoying. But I’ve fixed it after some Googling about and browsing deep into support forums.

In Chrome, enter the following into the Search/Navigation/URL bar:

chrome://flags

And then scroll about a third of the way down until you see the Delegated Rendered (AKA Übercompositor) option. Change this setting from Default to Enabled. Like this:
