I have a page with a custom webpart, the webpart has many fields and at the end it has a people picker.

The people picker popup opens correctly and I can select users inside, however they values selected are not returned to the textbox.

This only happens in Google Chrome, in Firefox and Internet explorer it works fine.

If I use the people picker in an edit form it works in all browsers. if I use the people picker in a popup it also works in all browsers.

This article from an ISV talks about the issue and traces it to a method Chrome no longer supports but for which the People Picker relies on.
