Dave, Chrome needs a new version of Java, called 6u10 (still in RC, a 
prerelease) or 1.6.0_10rc
After that it works well (no need for any activation), EXCEPT that 
the LiveConnect (= JavaScript to Java applet interface) is not there, 
so Jmol does not respond to buttons, links etc. contained in the 
webpage to change the model. At least in pages that use Jmol.js

We have recently had a discussion on this in the Jmol-users list; you 
may be interested to read the posts; go to
users at lists.sourceforge.net/maillist.html
