Google Chrome Error


I'm getting an error when I open the index.html file on Google Chrome. It says, "Failed to load <file path>: Cross origin requests are only supported for protocol schemes: http, data, chrome, chrome-extension, https." This prevents any changes I make in the app.jsx file to reflect.

Works fine with Firefox; though, getting some weird console errors from app.css and babel-browser.min.js.

Both browsers are up-to-date and have the React Dev Tools.

Thanks in advance!

Hiya there! The error suggests that you aren't serving your application over HTTP or https, plus you might wanna provide cors(cross-origin resource policy) to your express server. That's all I can from the error. But I hope it helped!
