I don't think I'm being alarmist here. I have no problem with my browser accessing my hard-drive, and specifically THIS browser. I just want to be told about it first. (it's not the type of thing I *expect* a browser to do, on a regular basis)
You're right, opening up this functionality will create a whole new venue of opertunities for Mozilla to become a true WebOS Platform. But with that new oppertunity, come new risks. I want to know if I (as end user) will at least be given the ability to stop the potential for abuse. If I say yes, then It's my tough luck if something nasty happens.
