jQuery Question

Jquery load() only working in firefox?

I am trying to get into jquery/ajax and I can't even believe I can't get past this first test. I'm following an example I found at The Jquery API site and I followed it just about to a T.

I created a local folder on the desktop, and added 2 files.

index.html

and

list1.html.




Index.html:

<html>
<head>
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
</head>

<body>

<div id="stage">
</div>

<script>
$( "#stage" ).load( "list1.html" );
</script>

</body>

</html>


list1.html

<div id="list">
<li>Test</li>
<li>Foo</li>
<li>Bar</li>
</div>


I was trying for like 15 minutes to run index.html in chrome and nothing displayed (like the jquery wasn't loading correctly). Out of pure curiosity I opened it with firefox and it displayed as expected.. something like this


  • Test

  • Foo

  • Bar



So is this a browser issue? Why does Chrome and IE not show this loaded list, but firefox does? I can't figure out if it's my code or the environment which is infuriating when trying to learn.

Try launching chrome / chromium with --allow-file-access-from-files flag set
