How to allow-file-access-from-files in Chrome?

I am using Chrome to test some of my WebGL texture programs. According to the book 'WebGL Programming Guide', if I need to access files from my local disk, I should add the option --allow-file-access-from-files to Chrome.

How do I do that?


The short answer is DON'T

Open up a shell/terminal/command line and type

cd path/to/htmlfiles
python -m SimpleHTTPServer

Then in your browser to go


If you find it's too slow consider this solution

The reason you don't want to allow file access is allowing it can be used to steal data from your machine. For example, you go to a site and download some webpage. You then view that page locally. With file access on that locally run page can now access all your files AND upload them to a server.
