Checkbox disabling using .prop(), Chrome

This has the expected effect in Firefox and Safari (haven't tested IE):

$(':checkbox').change(function() {

if($(':checkbox:checked').length == 2) {

$j(':checkbox').not(':checked').prop('disabled', 'disabled');

} else {




In Chrome the checkboxes will disable if the else statement isn't there, when it is the code is effectively ignored.

Changing .prop() to .attr() solves the problem. Of course my understanding of .prop() vs .attr() could be incorrect.

As the docs state, do not use removeProp to remove native properties. disabled should be set to boolean true or boolean false, not strings.
