Bypass CORS to fetch files when working with localhost

Sometime back I learned about opening files or directories using the
open command from the CLI on a Mac. It's simple yet effective.
Another use case that I've been using it for is to open the current project when in
localhost in the browser and bypass the CORS policy to fetch files that are also available locally.
open -a "Google Chrome Canary" --args --user-data-dir="/tmp/chrome_dev_test" --disable-web-security
The argument passed in the above command overrides the browser's default behavior.
