> We would like to get an official position from webkit for the Native File System API (spec, explainer), a API that enables developers to build powerful web apps that interact with files on the user’s local device. It builds on File API for file reading capabilities, and adds new API surface to enable modifying files, as well as working with directories. Chrome has implemented what is currently in the spec, and is planning to ship that soon.

Apple's WebKit team does not support this feature due to the security
/ safety concerns.
