Fwd: Fluid Demos Broken in Chrome

Hi everyone,

Jeff Cross from Unicon stumbled across an interesting bug with our demo portal in Chrome. This happens only when running the portal from the local file system. It looks like Chrome has tightened up their same origin policy rules for the local file system, making it similar but possibly more restrictive than Firefox.

I've filed a bug for the issue:


Should it be a blocker for 1.4?

> Hi Colin,
> I'm Jeff Cross, I work with Gary at Unicon and am getting up to speed on Fluid. I ran into an issue when running the demos locally in Chrome, and didn't see an existing issue at issues.fluidproject.org. 
> When I open any demo, such as pager, here is what my screen looks like (Web Inspector is open at the bottom so you can see javascript errors). It looks like a crossdomain issue, even though all the resources are local. Perhaps it's just a Chrome bug. Running Google Chrome 12.0.742.112.
> Thanks! - Jeff
