Hi Colin,

Thanks for  filing a jira for this. 

It's something that we've known about for a while, but I guess neglected to file a jira for. 
From what I  know, any local ajax call in Chrome  will not work. I don't think it's a blocker though.

I have looked into this a few times but have yet to find a work around, like we have for firefox. Although, I'm not an everyday user of Chrome.

Here's the chromium issue for it.

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.
