This is an open plea to WebKit to please discontinue the use of webkit-fake-url when an image is pasted into a contenteditable element and instead use dataURI encoding like any sensible person would. Or at the very least enable JavaScript access to the underlying image data. It makes absolutely no sense to block pasted image data from JavaScript when the user has explicitly pasted it into a web page.

Consider this question: what benefit is there in being able to paste an image into a web page that can only be viewed by the person who pasted it?

Can you tell I’m frustrated? I want Clipica to support Safari, but this is the only thing preventing it.
