I also see Java as a way to prototype new browser features, like file
upload. Once the prototype serves its purpose, though, the feature should
be hard-coded into browsers. There are useful file upload apps (the TCE
Corporate Technical Memory being one) where local directory restrictions on
files would not be a problem, so Java would be an appropriate prototyping

Maybe it is my own myopic viewpoint, but file upload seems to be one of just
a small handful of WWW browser features that have a very high benefit/cost
ratio that have not been implemented. Unicode support (admittedly
significantly higher cost) seems to be the other...
