You get a strange error on Google chrome when launching GI application from file URL (when you open the launch.html directly from filesystem)
that says something like
"Invalid character at column 1 character 1 of logger.xml"
If you open the Developer Tool and look at the Console output you will see that it is throwing all these Error for each XML file resource request by GI
"Cross origin requests are only supported for HTTP."
Turns out that similar to Firefox/Mozilla strict origin policy Google Chrome doesn't allow you to load resource from different paths
So for test purpose you can launch Chrome with this flag to get around this restriction
