HTML 5 out of isolation...

Once HTML 5 has access to web service APIs, "I can rule the world"(hands
wringing). Oh wait that was a 1931 movie.

I for one was very disappointed when I realized that local file access would
not be possible until I thought about it for a couple of milliseconds. One
could deliver a crypto locker style attack with very little effort.

Kevin/Peter,

Thanks for the update... waiting with baited breath.

Yes - that's what Peter means by a REST API (one way to do it anyway).

Kind regards,

Kevin
