Google Chrome

In Google Chrome, JavaScript is enabled by default.
JavaScript can only be disabled from the command line by running the “chrome.exe -disable-javascript” parameter.
The opposite command is “chrome.exe -enable-javascript”, which enables JavaScript support (in case of program error).
This requires modification of the Google Chrome shortcut by adding the “-enable-javascript” parameter to the shortcut.
