Joining Lync Meeting With Chrome Set As The Default Browser

What are the different ways to join a Lync online meeting with Chrome set as the default browser?

You want the Lync 2010 thick client to be “the client” for everything including joining online meetings. But when Chrome is set as the default browser, it comes up with a webpage asking us to join the meeting using the browser or to download the Lync Attendee. If IE is your default browser, there is no issue.

One workaround is to use the IE Tab extension from the chrome web store.

Once the extension is active, you can join the meeting as you would when you have IE as the default browser. You can of course copy and paste the meeting url into an IE browser and join the meeting that way.

Any other workaround guys?
