I am testing a game I build it on webgl and opened it on Google Chrome but nothing showed up just a screen with unity logo and no loading screen, then I tried on Firefox and it ran smoothly without any issues I am using unity 5.3.3f1 and Chrome 48 what can be the issue? I am really looking forward for your replies, I searched on internet but in vain and not too many people answered this question on internet.This is what I get when I run it on Chrome.

Web Gl does not work in Chrome running from file system.

I suggest one of two solutions:

  1. Run with Firefox for quick testing of a build.
  2. Upload to a server if you have it or to your Public-folder on dropbox. Right click on the index file, copy the URL and then test in different browsers.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Sure no problem! I have tried to deploy to OneDrive as well but couldn't get it to work. Dropbox works for testing but be aware that there is some kind of limit to how many can access your game in one day. \$\endgroup\$ Feb 28, 2016 at 8:18

I'm not sure but I think that Chrome won't let you execute webgl content from file for security reasons. If you chose build and run unity should start a local server with that it should work. Also there had been a problem with Chrome and webgl but I think they've fixed that by now.

Make sure you're not using the default "Arial" font anywhere. WebGL does not support it. You need to import a font and then set all text resources to use it.

When I failed to do so, I got a grey screen that never finished loading, it would just hang.
