I just set chrome to always use that flag? Could that cause a problem?

I'd be wary about using a browser with a flag named "disable web security" to browse the web normally. As it suggests, it's disabling mechanisms that protect you from certain attack vectors.

It'd be far better to fix the CORS issues in your setup than bypass them, but if you can't, I'd only use the browser with that flag for code you own.
