Drop file in Chrome crashes browser tab + test

I found this issue scattered around here and on Github, but there doesn’t seem to be any reasonable response.

The fact is that Chrome browser crashes on drop file on non-SSL hosts. Test here:

  • Tested in latest Uppy and latest Chrome on both Mac and Windows.
  • Only crashes in Chrome browser.
  • Only non-SSL.

Although one could argue “just use SSL”, this just isn’t the case for apps that may be published on localhost or other private environments. There is obviously a large volume of users on Chrome, and it’s really annoying that it says “drop files here …” and doing exactly that crashes the browser window. Surely there could be at least an option to disable drag-and-drop, so we can disable it on Chrome+http?
