WICG File and Directory Entries API

The Web Incubator Community Group (WICG) File and Directory Entries API is a specification that imitates local file systems that are remotely navigable and accessible to web applications. The API allows developers to build applications that can manipulate files and directories, by way of creating, reading, or writing, in virtual file systems. Although the API is mainly compatible with Google Chrome, it is partially supported by Mozilla Edge and Mozilla Firefox browsers.
