I have been developing an AJAX application using jQuery and Microsoft Seadragon technology.
I need to have access to the html5 canvas function toDataURL.
With Google Chrome, the same origin rule applies to this function which means that a page run locally (with the
file:/// in the URL) failed to satisfy the same origin rule and an exception is thrown.
With Chrome 7, starting the application with
--allow-file-access-from-files option, allows to call
canvas.toDataURL() from local files.
However, it seems that starting the Chrome Beta 8 with the same option (
--allow-file-access-from-files) does not allow the call
canvas.toDataURL() on the local file.
Does Chrome gave up on the
--allow-file-access-from-files option or it has just been disabled since it is a Beta release and not a full release?
