Subject Re: FileTransfer vs XHR2 - Should we keep improving FileTransfer?
Date Thu, 26 Jul 2012 17:17:04 GMT
I don't see polyfillin this as an easy feat.
How can we implement ArrayBuffer?
Also, without web workers, file transfers would block the ui thread,
or am I missing something?
I think we need to go a little further into the 'how' before we can
see if it makes sense.

Personally I think there will always be a place for the FileTransfer
API as it is simple and dedicated.
