Google Chrome, by default, blocks insecure content on secure pages. Is there any way to allow it to load the full content and have it ask me (like Firefox does)? Even if it doesn't ask me and just loads it that is OK with me.
When you visit a secure page with insecure content, a shield icon will appear at the right edge of the omnibar.
Click on the shield icon, and then click Load anyway, and the insecure content will be loaded.
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --allow-running-insecure-content
'/Applications/Google Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google Chrome' --allow-running-insecure-content
on a mac, you can create an applescript application in applesript editor with following contents:
do shell script "'/Applications/Google Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google Chrome' --allow-running-insecure-content > /dev/null 2>&1 &"
when you save it as an application, you can assign chrome icon to it :)
A simpler approach is to create a dedicated insecure instance via a shortcut with "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --allow-running-insecure-content. This way you don't have to be annoyed on allowing all the time in your browser and can run a separate instance at the same time as a regular instance of Chrome while working within a site.
