Unfortunately I can only upvote this once.

When you see what bad actors already manage to do with the oh so limited means they have today, one should think it is obvious that giving them total control over hardware and file system is suicide. Just hand your computer over to anyone who wants it. And why? Just because it would be "cool" to use a browser to run stuff on a remote computer? Really? Which of humanity's many problems does that solve, pray tell?

I think some developers should consider the "Common Sense for Dummies" book.
