Just so you are aware:
With the "From Virtual Cursor" setting, text is copied as
plain text without formatting, pictures, and HTML
With the "Full Content Using Onscreen Highlight" setting,
the text and elements you select are highlighted onscreen as
you press selection keys from the keyboard just as it would
be in programs like Word Processors. The content is then
copied with all formatting.
The default setting is Full Content Using Onscreen

I always had one issue with Chrome and that
was that it was very unreliable to copy any text. Last
week I spoke to FS support about something else and ended
up asking the guy. He told me to open Chrome, go into the
quick settings with Jaws Key+V and type the word “select”
into the search box, then tab to the results.
You end up on a virtual cursor option called
“Select and Copy From”, by default this is set to
Full content using onscreen highlight”.
If you press the spacebar it changes to
“Virtual Cursor” and if it is set to this copying works
I still have a few sites where Chrome
doesn’t work and then I go back to IE, but for the most part
Chrome is very good.
I guess now with the upcoming Jaws 2018
we’ll see how good Edge support is/will become, but in my
opinion browsers are like hammers to a carpenter or saws to
a woodworker, you have several and use the one which works
best for the particular job or, in this case, website. They
are after all free, there are no problems having Chrome and
Firefox installed on a Windows 10 machine in addition to IE
and Edge which are there by default so why not try each for
what you do and decide what works best for you.
IE, Firefox once in awile and chrome
from time to time. I really dont like the History or
bookmark layout in either Firefox or Chrome.
Also some of the sluggishness or crashing isnt IE it is
Jaws and it happens with Firefox and Chrome just not as
often from what people say but then again I dont have that
much trouble with IE.

I like IE. Chrome doesn't play nicely with Jaws 16.
