Question:

Can you run CMEW on Google Chrome Browser ?

Answer:

CMEW use Java applets and Chrome no longer supports NPAPI (technology required for Java applets). Although you can perform most of the CMEW functions using Chrome browser,  when you try to retrieve elements to local directory,  you will get the pop up window prompting you to install Java Plugin (the popup window will appear again after you install JRE and restart the Chrome browser):

Solution:  Internet explore (IE) support Java applets and is the better choice to run CMEW.
