3. For your change to take effect, click the Relaunch Now button at the base of the page.
Once Google Chrome relaunches, the Java (and Silverlight) content will display once again in the browser window. The plug-ins will still be subject to the previous blocking restrictions you may have encountered with Chrome in the past. You may need to give the plug-ins permission to run even with NPAPI enabled.
To disable NPAPI again if needed, return to the chrome://flags/#enable-npapi page, and click the Disable link under Enable NPAPI Mac, Windows.
Use NPAPI plug-ins in Chrome with IE Tab extension
Monobrowser Chrome acolytes also have the option of installing Chrome extensions like IE Tab. IE Tab emulates functionality within Chrome, such as Java and Silverlight (and other technologies that use NPAPI) that is found in other web browsers. The extension also allows you to set up Auto URLs that automatically open specified URLs using IE Tab. By doing so, you may automatically load frequently visited pages that included Java content to open in IE Tab. For more information about using IE Tab in Chrome, see this article and watch this video tutorial.
But be advised…this work-around will only be an option for you to use until September 2015. At that point, the ability to enable and disable NPAPI is scheduled to be removed from Google Chrome for good.
