LOCAL file browsing can not or will you forbid any fileupload per webform

you can browse local files here?

their will be nothing uploaded and you should stop to cry
things like "When will the linux community wake up" until
you have ANY BASICAL knowledge about what you are speaking

you CAN NOT silently upload files with JS, so please
get some basics or shut up instead making some noobs crazy
which maybe believe your stuff

it can not access cookies from foreign domains damned
learn basics or shut up!
