How to get Unity Webplayer to work with Chrome

First I would like to give credit where credit is due.
I learned this fix from Eric Hackathorn.
Thanks Eric!

Recently Chrome stopped the NPAPI support for their browsers leaving those of us who log in to Unity3D Webplayer sites unable to install the Unity webplayer.
But there is a fix, only until September though.
type: chrome://flags/#enable-npapi in the address bar of your Chrome browser. Click enter.
When brought to the next page find NPAPI and click enable.
Now restart your browser.
Try to log in to a unity webplayer site and you should be able to access the Unity webplayer now.

This fix worked for some people but not all and all support will be terminated by Chrome by Sept 2015 so you fix will work til then.
In September 2015 (Chrome 45) we will remove the override and NPAPI support will be permanently removed from Chrome. Installed extensions that require NPAPI plugins will no longer be able to load those plugins.
