When is Google going to answer this question? And please don't tell me to modify the command line. Modify it where? In the shortcut I use to open the browser? This is supposed to be an end-user application for browsing the web, not a programmer's tool.

Launch Google Chrome from Start/Run with the parameter
-enable-javascript.
 
For example, in Vista:
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe
-enable-javascript
 
For example, in Windows XP: "C:\Documents and
Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\chrome.exe"
-enable-javascript
 
or
 
In my Windows XP it was here: "C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" -enable-javascript
 
NOTE: Javascript is supposed to be enabled in Chrome by default.
