GWT devmode on Windows requires localhost permissions - 26 Oct 2012

search

While GWT's devmode plugin should work out of the box when one is connecting from localhost to localhost. This is not the case on Google's own Chrome.

I have noticed this sort of behavior on Windows before; it is very particular about specific address matching. 127.0.0.1 != localhost on Windows.

But then why does this not happen on Firefox or IE?
