Always launch Google Chrome beta with integrated Flash
Authored by: brh on Apr 05, '10 11:58:29AM

The easiest way, IMO, is to open up the (Google Chrome, in this case) application bundle (right click, show package contents), go into Contents, and open up Info.plist.

Once you're in there, just change the value of the 'Executable file' key to include your args.

So, 'Google Chrome --enable-internal-flash' would be the new value for Executable file.

It's quick & easy, and it's 100% GUI for those who don't like to muck around in the Terminal. I personally love to muck around, but would still prefer to do it this way…

Don't do that! It doesn't work and the application won't even launch once the os reload it from disk. If you change the value of CFBundleExecutable to $YOURNAME the os will look for $APP/Content/MacOS/$YOURNAME and since it doesn't exist:Boom!. It doesn't parse command line arguments there since they are not supposed to be there. There's no key dedicated to that purpose( there's one to set the executable's environment but not its arguments because the open cmd is there for that). You can find a list of all the settable key in a bundle plist there:
