Thanks! Can you also add something about the issue that the upload tool should only load small chunks of files at a time into the browser's memory so that a 20GB upload doesn't result in the browser attempting to load all 20GB into RAM and/or pagefile at once?

@Pine I can't reproduce that issue in Firefox 41 on Mac OS X; memory usage does not appear to balloon up with file size (testing a few several-hundred-megabyte files); and the code in UW for handling chunked uploads appears to properly slice up the file from the source File/Blob object, and only reads in individual chunks into strings/formdata.
