What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

Opening the Stack Exchange chat help page, I pass all of the tests up to, but not including, "Test 5: Storage".

I'm using the beta version of Chrome, 13.0.782.112 beta-m, and I can't figure out why it's not connecting.

You need to enable third-party cookies. Options -> Settings -> Advanced (at the bottom) -> Content Settings -> Cookies, select "Allow local data to be set" and either uncheck "Block third-party cookies and site data" or add exceptions for the relevant sites (I think [*.]sstatic.net, [*.]stackoverflow.com, and [*.]stackexchange.com).

Chrome currently has no way to allow all first-party cookies and block all third-party cookies except for exceptions. This is extremely annoying. I want to allow all first-party cookies and allow third-party only for stackauth.com, myself; I use no other sites that require them. This has been fixed.

have you suggested this as a feature for the Chrome team on their bugzilla? that is, third party cookie exception lists? –  Jeff Atwood Aug 11 '11 at 4:36

Google ignores all my bug reports, including serious privacy issues in Calendar, but here it is: code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=92481. Everyone star it :P –  Matthew Read Aug 11 '11 at 15:00
