Tag Archives: File API W3C
While mentioned in the post announcing the release of Chrome 7 stable, not much has ever been said about the File API that has quietly been implemented into the browser. If you have heard recently about the fact that you can now drag and drop files from your desktop and into Google Docs to upload them, that is a perfect example of the File API in action.
The API itself is actually an open standard that has been developed in conjunction with the W3C. That’s why you can use the Google Docs drag and drop feature not just in Chrome, but also in Firefox and Safari.
