Export to Excel now Works in Chrome. Open with Project doesn't work anywhere :)

So.. some good news for the majority of people.

This scope of this post is all about SharePoint Online.

The most popular browser in the world nowadays is Chrome... and we've had the pain of not being able to use the "Export to Excel" functionality on SharePoint lists for a while... I've even implemented HTML buttons in CEWP in order for people to download a pre-saved .iqy file and get the same functionality in any browser. From last week, the OOB button on the ribbon seems to work fine in Chrome! It also works in FireFox (not sure since when) and IE and Edge had this working traditionally.

Now the bad news...

The Open with Project button that was working fine in any browser doesn't work. In any browser. So the only way to open your Project (.mpp) files that are synced to SharePoint task list is to go to Site Contents -> Site Assests and then open the file from there.

While this has been aknowledged by Microsoft like 2 weeks ago, there's still no fix and no ETA on a fix...
