Unable to record web actions with Script Editor

Hi,

On Mac OS Monterey, I use Script Editor.

For simple tasks like going to Finder, opening a new folder, naming it
Script Editor can record these actions and replay them once compiled.

On the other hand, in recording mode, Script Editor does not record any action when I open Chrome, for example, enter a URL then close the Chrome window.
Why that?

Thank you for your help

The Script Editor’s Recording feature depends on each application you interact with publishing your actions. Chrome and most other present-day applications fail to do this. It’s only a few older applications developed when AppleScript recording was a prominent macOS feature (Finder, FileMaker Pro, BBEdit, etc.) that continue to publish this information.
