Sharepoint and Javascript.  Works in IE but not in Chrome.

I have a Content Editor webpart on a Sharepoint page that is reference a file with the script below.  It works fine in IE but not in Chrome.  Going further into the issue i setup a simple alert("test"); and in IE it would work every time I refreshed the page.  In Chrome it would run once and never again.

What I basically am doing is pulling values from a query string and populating them in a DIV on the page.

<script language="javascript">

var RegionVar;
var DepotVar;
var ProgramVar;

function GetUrlValue(VarSearch){
    var SearchString = window.location.search.substring(1);
    var VariableArray = SearchString.split('&');
    for(var i = 0; i < VariableArray.length; i++){
        var KeyValuePair = VariableArray[i].split('=');
        if(KeyValuePair[0] == VarSearch){
            return KeyValuePair[1];


function SetDynamicData(){

RegionVar = GetUrlValue('Region');
DepotVar = GetUrlValue('depot');
ProgramVar= GetUrlValue('program');

document.getElementById("titlebardiv").innerHTML=(DepotVar.replace(/%20/gi, " "));
document.getElementById("programbardiv").innerHTML=(ProgramVar.replace(/%20/gi, " "));

window.onload=SetDynamicData ;

which SharePoint version?

I would be really really careful to use window.onload - especially with SharePoint.

Could you simply try to replace
window.onload=SetDynamicData ;
