    Default Is this possible, where to start?

    Hi all,

    I'm looking at a project where we want to port a web application (only for internal use) from a Microsoft HTA environment to perhaps a google Chrome environment.

    There are a bunch of hurdles to take in this, but by far the greatest is integrating a few external tools. HTA's allow me to bypass almost all security features present in normal browser mode. I would need to for example execute some command-line tools and copy local files from one location to another... (Under normal circumstances obviously an unacceptable security breach).

    Would it be possible to write plugins or extensions that allow me to do this? if so, where do I start looking for reference? I'm an experienced webdeveloper, I write JavaScript, VB, VB.net, C#, and have done work in a few other languages...

    Thank You!
