    We will change the headline of this RFE to "Remove Synchronous XMLHttpRequest in CQWeb" and accept it, as a result of the analysis for 1st issue.

    If you still cannot load CQWeb in Chrome, please open a ticket to have our support engineer help you with that.

    Thanks for the feedback. After checking the screenshot for Chrome, I see there are two different issues.

    1. The warning of Synchronous XMLHttpRequest is being deprecated is true, but it's just a warning and XMLHttpRequest still remains. There is indeed no direct evidence suggesting that it'll be removed anytime soon, especially considering number of sites and technologies removal of the feature would affect. So don't worry about that in future there will be no current Browser-Version available to use CQWeb.

    2. CQWeb does support the latest version of Chrome. We've tried Chrome 76, 75 and CQWeb can load successfully. Back to your problem that while using the current Chrome Version 75, the CQWeb will not load, the real errors in the Chrome console is ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED when requesting CQWeb scripts.
    ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED is a common Chrome error that users experience at random. Please ask your IT admin or see this page for kinds of solutions.

    So CQWeb works as usual in the latest versions of Firefox and Chrome and you could continue to use it.
    If you'd like, we could accept this RFE, but change the headline as "Remove synchronous XMLHttpRequest in CQWeb".
    Please let us know your further feedback. Thanks.

    1. We are using the following versions:
    Client application: FP5 or FP6
    Websphere App Server: 9.0.0 FP10 or FP11
    Http Server: 9.0.0 FP10 or FP11

    2. The problem occurs when using the CQ weblink. When requesting the URL one can see the following messages in the developer consoles of Firefox and Chrome. Firefox warns against the usage of synchronous XMLHttpRequests, but despite loads the website. Chrome also shows a warning, but does not load the website. Chrome simply shows a blank page. You can also see the behaviour in the attached screenshots.

    This request lacks sufficient information for us to evaluate it. Could you answer the following questions?

    1. What's the version of CQ you are using?
    2. Can you elaborate how CQWeb does not load in Chrome 75? Does the issue happen when you access CQWeb link or use REST API, OSLC?
