How do you save stuff in files from the browser?

I've googled around about this a couple times and not found anything good, so if anyone can point to some clear documentation I'd appreciate it.

I'm on mobile so I can write to much accompanying text, but start here:


Thanks to both of you. I'll check it out.

I don’t think that’s going to work, since the data URI is inherently local (and only works on Chrome), and you can’t use the Chrome file-system API or even localStorage when you're viewing a local file, unless chrome was opened with `--allow-file-access-from-files`
