Description

Program version openmoko-browser2 - 0.0.1+svnr3249-r1 (as in sane-srcrevs.inc)

A local filesystem browser would be nice, either in the rendered page itself (if
webkit supports this -- like Firefox when you select a local directory as the
URI) or as a GTK file selector accessible from the URI-entry page.

Background: I use the "Scrapbook" extension for Firefox on my desktop computer
to collect documentation for reading -- it automatically turns remote links into
local-file links. Scrapbook allows sets of pages to be exported to a folder,
which I then copy to the Neo.

This works great once I get the folder onto the Neo, except that to start
browsing, I need to type into the URI box (for example):

file:///media/card/docs/scrapbook/Introduction_to_the_Enlightenment_foundation_libraries/index.html

Needless to say, it's a bit tedious (and tab-completion doesn't seem to work).
It sure would be nice to be able to browse my way there from a default directory.
