Connect 3.6 includes a native PPAPI plugin for Google Chrome which works in Chrome browsers that disable the NPAPI plugin interface.

Once you have version 3.6 installed, Connect will function properly on Chrome for all servers that have been patched for Connect 3.6. For servers that have not been patched, Connect 3.6 will still work as usual. Therefore, it is recommended to upgrade to Connect 3.6 regardless as it will not cause any problems with unpatched servers, but it will solve the Chrome issue once the server been patched.
