How to use Chrome with native Wayland support and VAAPI

Hello there,

With Chrome version 122, it support native Wayland. see this:

The old, Xwayland implementation codes are removed.

This flags to need to start Chrome to use this new method:

--enable-features=VaapiVideoDecodeLinuxGL --use-gl=angle --use-angle=gl --ozone-platform=wayland

The easy way to use flags permanently, if you edit Chrome .desktop file.

I tested a Intel integrated card and work well! (much better, than the old xwayland method)

Some Chrome release ago, videos in chrome that use VAAPI (Youtube, twitch, etc..) are tearing when i move the mouse. This problem are gone, when use native wayland.
