With the recent RuneScape 3 BETA release SwiftKit also needed to evolve in order to support the latest HTML5 technology. Previously SwiftKit used Internet Explorer to load RuneScape in, now however, users have the option to use Chrome instead. This means that you will be able to take full advantage of the all new RuneScape 3 HTML5 technology, all within SwiftKit. There's no denying that RuneScape works best in Google Chrome, you will see immediate performance enhances.

When I check 'Use Chrome" under [Play Now] then hit [Play Now] my playing window goes white and then crashes within 30 seconds, and if I try to play it the old way without checking "Use Chrome" than hit play now, I go to the RS website, press Play, and then it won't load because my fully up to date Java is "Not up to date" but I have checked it several times and it is at v7.21

How do you set Chrome instead of I/E?
Under "View" Click on "Settings" , below the field for entering your default lookup name theres a checkbox option "Disable Chrome as Internal Browser". Uncheck that.
You'll need the latest download of Chrome installed, if for some reason it still isn't working look under the settings again and under the category for Hotkeys theres the field to set the path for chrome. Manually choose the path if you installed chrome differently from the default installation path.
Hope this helps!
