Implement XHR2 send(blob)

Reported by, Aug 5 2010

Issue description

XmlHttpRequest level 2 specification defines an overloaded send method that can be used to send a blob. Being able to send a blob is particularly important as it is the only standard way so far that can be used to send binary data out from sandboxed javascript. When implemented it allows client-side web applications to access existing interfaces that require binary data as their input. This includes many interfaces for uploading files and other data to a server.

See for details.
This functionality is already present in the latest Chrome. Could someone mark this bug as fixed?
I believe the FileSystem API, when used with XHR2 will allow sandboxed javascript to send out named files. Haven't confirmed it yet.
