good guess. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MSIE#Version_7 July 27, 2005 for technical testing... released on January 31, 2006. so >2 years old. http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/CVS_Tags Firefox 2 is based on Firefox 1.5, Firefox 1.5 branched August 12, 2005. So it's even older. There is an object called DOMFile. http://mxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/content/base/public/nsIDOMFile.idl#41 which would theoretically let you manipulate the data from a local file the user gave you. It looks like you could do: <input type=file id=a> <img id=b> <input type=submit onclick="document.getElementById("b").src=document.getElementById("a").files.getAsDataURL();"> This is of course entirely untested and probably not guaranteed to work or whatever. see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=371432 and http://wiki.mozilla.org/OfflineAppsSummit2006
