HYPERLINK ISSUE TO NETWORK SHARED DIRECTORY with GOOGLE CHROME

Hello,
I have a code working with IE10 ,9,8,....

this code is not working with Google chrome,

as you know, for windows ,if  you want to open a network shared directory you use the syntax:
\\server\directory

so the html hyperlink is Href="\\server\directory"

with IE: it works

with chrome: not working.  when I right click, and use Inspect element of chrome, I see that chrome interpret this link as
url/server/directory  (please see the attached file)

thank you for your help !

Href="\\server\directory" and 'file://' links do not work in pages that are loaded with 'http' or 'https' in both Chrome and Firefox.  It is considered serious security problem.  Here's the long and very detailed explanation: http://code.google.com/p/browsersec/wiki/Part2

In IE we have to define the site as an intranet site  .

is there a way to do such things in chrome or safary ?
