I think we should really separate the type of APIs that Chrome implemented, which grants access to sandboxed filesystems, from APIs that lets a page interact with the user's filesystem. The two are generally much more different than they are similar. I think for mozilla implementing APIs which provide access to an origin-sandboxed filesystem is relatively small right now. I think we're much more interested in APIs which allow reading and writing to the user's filesystem. I couldn't give any timelines for when we'd implement any proposals, but I'd personally be happy to provide feedback to drafts. And I'd be even more happy to see other browsers experiment with the various UX challenges involved. / Jonas
