Chrome and CB (in Off-topic)

So I finally switched to Chrome on my mac OSX. But I can't see CB chat. What should I do about it.

It works for my safari and firefox, I don't need to download Java again do I?

I vote yes.

Different kind of Java Plugin I'm betting.

Thank the spirit gods and go with it.

I use Chrome, and everything works perfectly. Maybe there's some weird glitch going on?

Yeah, go try to install Java again, make sure it's the JRE and not just a browser plugin. http://www.java.com/

I can't seem to redownload Java on my mac. It just brings me to the software update application.

Apparently only the developer preview builds of Chrome on the Mac have working Java.

Why? Because Apple is lame. ;) From the Java site: "Apple supplies their own version of Java" instead of, you know, the normal versions that everyone else on every other OS uses and can update manually.

"Because Apple is lame."

In other news, humans need to breathe!
