Re: File upload from a Web browser

I also see Java as a way to prototype new browser features, like file 
upload.  Once the prototype serves its purpose, though, the feature should 
be hard-coded into browsers.  There are useful file upload apps (the TCE 
Corporate Technical Memory being one) where local directory restrictions on 
files would not be a problem, so Java would be an appropriate prototyping 

Maybe it is my own myopic viewpoint, but file upload seems to be one of just 
a small handful of WWW browser features that have a very high benefit/cost 
ratio that have not been implemented.  Unicode support (admittedly 
significantly higher cost) seems to be the other...
