This "open local files" extension, as far as I can tell, is useless. It doesn't add any new button or menu that allows me to browse and open a file. The text that it shows after installation doesn't provide any guidance on how to actually use the tool to open any file other than the example. This is basic functionality that every browser should support.

The opening test doesn't work right on Linux.
