Unsafe Chrome Sometimes Necessary

In my work – every now and then – I found myself in need of a browser with reduced security checks (mainly to gloss over cross domain XMLHttpRequests and SSL certificate violations) for testing purposes. I didn’t want to take the risk and use my main browser session with these settings, so I made me a script (also available as a Gist). 🙂

If you use oh my ZSH you can save this file in ~/.oh-my-zsh/custom/plugins/chrome-unsafe/chrome-unsafe.plugin.zsh and add “chrome-unsafe” to your list of used plugins in ~/.zshrc
