Roman 09:02 I have put together an html5 application which, among other things, uploads files. The application is designed to be used with google chrome. I need to be able to drag and drop outlook attachments to this browser application. It appears that I need to save attachment to some temporary location and then upload it.

is firebreath suited for this purpose? If so, would anyone have sample or documentation.?

taxilian 09:02 Roman: no, because Chrome is currently planning to remove NPAPI support in a month or two
it's actually very unclear to me that you need a plugin at all
HTML5 file upload should work fine
dcherman 10:02 taxilian: not from outlook attachments :/ i think what it provides you is a reference to a temp file or something like that rather than the file content itself

it's like pasting from MS Word - the image tags in the resultant html are all temp files

so in order to really upload the document correctly, you'd need to inline the content or upload it somewhere which requires filesystem access

taxilian 11:02 interesting. pretty sure you can't do that with a plugin
well, maybe with a windowed plugin I suppose
but those are going away in Chrome, so not a good option
