How gracefully does it go when the user does not have js?

Thank you very much. Do you have a git branch I can clone for this?

My preference is to implement only html5 in phpbb if this works on all current browsers, with a falback to html4 (existing behavior in 3.0).

I agree, Flash is dead and Silverlight was never alive to begin with. Everything can be done with pure HTML5 now (chunked upload, streamed upload, image resizing etc.).

http://www.plupload.com/punbb/viewtopic.php?id=1685 was the plupload vulnerability.

If we only use html5 would we be vulnerable to flash vulnerabilities like this?

That vulnerability exists in the compiled SWF file, therefore if we do not use the SWF at all then there should be no vulnerability.

html5 is not available in all browsers as of now. I say we include flash and/or silverlight in the package and let the admins choose the preferred framework. It is just a matter of including a string in it's configuration.

@fyorl, I had made a branch on github for this project, will update it with some more commits, you can dig up from there. And I suggest you do not use the plupload github source, but their stable release package.

Which browsers currently support everything we want via html5?
