IE makes use of a Web Datasheet Component (I believe via an ActiveX control), but Chrome uses "extensions" which are not supported at the moment. Refer to this article:

Use IE. Datasheet view is only available for IE due to it being one of the few remaining ACtiveX controls, it does not work in the other supported browsers (Firefox/Chrome).
