Unfortunately, as of the current version of Chrome (v0.4.154.23) there is no way to disable/enable JavaScript 'on the fly' as you can do with other browsers by changing a simple setting in its Options panel, etc.
In order to disable JavaScript for Google Chrome:
First close any open Chrome windows.
Right click on a blank area of your Desktop.
Select New.
Create a new Shortcut with the following in the "Type the location of the item:" text box:

For Windows Vista:

%userprofile%\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe -disable-javascript

For Windows XP:

"%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\chrome.exe" -disable-javascript
Note: You'll have to enclose the file path for Windows XP in quotes due to there being spaces in it. (Enter the appropriate file path for your Windows version from the above examples.)
Enter a name for the Shortcut such as; Chrome - No JavaScript (it can any name that you want to use). Click Finish.
Move the Shortcut to a location of your choice if you do not want to keep in on your Desktop. In order to enable JavaScript for Google Chrome again after opening it using the above Shortcut: First close any open Chrome windows.
Open Chrome using any of the default Shortcuts that were installed during the installation process. Note: These instructions were written while v0.4.154.23 (Wednesday, November 19, 2008) was the current version released for download. Hopefully the developers will see the shortcomings of having to use this method just to disable JavaScript and eventually include an option/setting in the Options panel as other browsers do.
