If you do any kind of front-end web development work, I’d encourage you to follow the Mozilla Hacks blog. Today’s post is a really interesting one – reading EXIF data from a JPEG file that has been dropped on the page from the desktop.
This is capability is due to the new File API that is in Firefox 3.6. This API allows you to asynchronously read a file into memory and access the data. The blending of standard desktop applications and web applications continues.
