Chrome Options for Local Use
For learning and testing reasons you might want to use taccgl™ locally,
i.e. access pages with a "file:" url.
Chrome and other webkit browsers have additional security checks
for accessing local files that need to be relaxed using the following
For various animations taccgl™ needs to download/access 3D model files and images used
for textures, which means to access local files in this case. Make sure to understand
the implications of these options e.g. in the chrome documentataion before use.
In order to set the options you need to restart chrome with the options (it is not sufficient to
just start a new Chrome window in parallel with an already running chrome).
To apply the options it is easiest to copy the chrome desktop icon, to open
the context menu with the right mouse button, select "Properties" and to append
the options to the program name e.g.
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"
Note that the installation path of chrome might vary on your system.
You can also start chrome from a command window using these options, however starting from the
"run" entry in the windows start menu might not work.
