    Default Fader problem

    I'm having problems getting a Fader to work.
    Finally realized it's because Chrome doesn't use ActiveX.
    I don't know much about ActiveX or NPAPI. so I'm not sure what I need to do to get it to work.
    The fader code is
    <div id="fader" style="position:absolute; top: 56px; left:279px; width:600px; text-align:left;"></div>
    and the scripit it loads from
    <!-- Begin
    //  texts:
    //  Your messages wich may contain regular html tags but
    //  must at least contain: [ <font color='{COLOR}'> ]
    //  Use single quotes [ ' ] in your html only. If you need
    //  a double quote in the message itself use an escape
    //  sign like this: [ \" ]  (not including the brackets)
    var texts = new Array(
    "<font size='2pt' color='{COLOR}' face='Arial'><strong>It's nice to feel alive again! Sara, Director of Education, Stott Pilates </strong></font>",
    "<font size='2pt' color='{COLOR}' face='Arial'><strong>I've been doing a number of things to lose weight over the years and it has worked but only to a point.

    with other javascript before it but I don't think it has to do with the fader.

    and to post everything (I think)
    Here is the script thats on the actual pages.

    <script src="../include/javascript.js" language="javascript" type="text/javascript"></script>
    Which loads the script the fader is in

    and this one as well.
    <script type="text/JavaScript">
    function MM_swapImgRestore() { //v3.0
      var i,x,a=document.MM_sr; for(i=0;a&&i<a.length&&(x=a[i])&&x.oSrc;i++) x.src=x.oSrc;
    function MM_preloadImages() { //v3.0
      var d=document; if(d.images){ if(!d.MM_p) d.MM_p=new Array();
        var i,j=d.MM_p.length,a=MM_preloadImages.arguments; for(i=0; i<a.length; i++)
        if (a[i].indexOf("#")!=0){ d.MM_p[j]=new Image; d.MM_p[j++].src=a[i];}}
    function MM_findObj(n, d) { //v4.01
      var p,i,x;  if(!d) d=document; if((p=n.indexOf("?"))>0&&parent.frames.length) {
        d=parent.frames[n.substring(p+1)].document; n=n.substring(0,p);}
      if(!(x=d[n])&&d.all) x=d.all[n]; for (i=0;!x&&i<d.forms.length;i++) x=d.forms[i][n];
      for(i=0;!x&&d.layers&&i<d.layers.length;i++) x=MM_findObj(n,d.layers[i].document);
      if(!x && d.getElementById) x=d.getElementById(n); return x;
    function MM_swapImage() { //v3.0
      var i,j=0,x,a=MM_swapImage.arguments; document.MM_sr=new Array; for(i=0;i<(a.length-2);i+=3)
       if ((x=MM_findObj(a[i]))!=null){document.MM_sr[j++]=x; if(!x.oSrc) x.oSrc=x.src; x.src=a[i+2];}
    Hope someone can help me out cause I've tried, and looked online and haven't had any luck at all getting it to work in Google Chrome.

    I gave up with NPAPI since no one was able to help me out, and was never able to find anything online to help me get it to work in google, Made it into flash instead as it works on both.
