Chrome must be launched with the following command-line argument: `--js-flags=--noexpose_wasm`. On Windows and Linux/Unix, simply appending the argument after the chrome executable is all that's required. For example:
`chrome --js-flags=--noexpose_wasm`
On macOS, the syntax is a bit different.
```bash
open /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app --args --js-flags=--noexpose_wasm
```
On Windows, modifying the registry may also be beneficial in order to maintain state between Chrome auto-updates.
```ini
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ChromeHTML\shell\open\command
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\http\shell\open\command
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\https\shell\open\command
```
Uncheck the write permission on these keys so that the changes persist on next auto-update of Chrome. Thanks to @tophf for providing information about the flag and registry settings.

An enhancement request is proposed to provide Chrome-like flags. Refer to https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/issues/545
The Brave browser (Laptop edition) is based on Chromium and the same command-line argument works on Brave as well.
**Safari**
Safari does not have advanced about:config functionality and the Developer mode does not have an option to
disable WASM.
