It appears that Opera too implements File.slice. Would be great to
know for how long it's been implemented.

Does anyone know of any sites that actually uses File.slice. It's
fairly easy to detect how an implementation interprets the File.slice
arguments so it should be easy for websites to support both the old
and the new behavior. However of course the websites needs to be
updated to do so.

If someone knows about any websites I can personally take care of
contacting them and trying to get them fixed.
