CRM and Chrome: Run as another user

As a CRM consultant, you need to test the customisations. With IE, Run as another user actually works and allows you to easily logon as any test user you like. However, Chrome consistently ignores the specific credentials entered and always logs on with the currently authenticated Windows user.

So in order to get this to work with Chrome, I created a desktop shortcut as follows:

“C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” –no-sandbox

The –no-sandbox command did the trick! And now I can use the “Run as another user” and authenticate to CRM in Chrome with any test user I want. However, running Chrome in this mode is not as safe. Please refer to this page for a quick visual introduction to the sandbox mode:
