First let me say I'm not having ANY issue with Chrome and my app which is a very complex client/server web app. I'm using 8.3.2 and also testing with 9.0.1. All good.
Oddly enough, I'm working on some new test and I had to make a very simple html page, load it in the browser, find the link, and click it. Here's the html page:
<html> <head> <title>Link Tests</title> </head> <body> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.google.com">Google</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.bing.com">Bing</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.yahoo.com">Yahoo</a></li> </ul> </body> </html>In IE and FireFox (ESR v60.5), it works perfectly fine. In Chrome (72), it doesn't work. When I launch Spy, it doesn't even see the DOM.
Again, this is using 8.3.2 and 9.0.1
