With Pentaho 5.0.1 and 5.0.2 on Chrome 31, I can enter a userid and password on the login screen, but then browser freezes forever with spinning wheel and message "Just a few moments please, Pentaho User Console is loading".
Works okay using Firefox and Safari.
This one might be related to the evernote extension in chrome 31. When it's enabled the issue occurs, but you can successfully login when it is disabled. (See screencast below)
