Patterned after the PHP filesystem functions, simple functions such as file read/write and directory create are supported. The code has not yet made it into the nightly build, but they expect it will get in soon.
<<Most ordinary users I know press "yes" on every "Warning! Are you sure?" screen they get,>>
Then they're idiots and deserve to get their hard-drives reformatted.
I have no problem with signed scripts being given said access. They already have pretty much the same sort of access right now. It's called "Smart Update"
Most Netscape users I know don't mind granting access to their hard-drive, provided they're properly warned about it before hand, and have the choice of rejecting it.
What I am worried about is a script given carte-blanche simply because it's in a "Safe Zone" (read, my chromes directory). THAT is what Netscape users hate about that VBScript junk.
