It's already the case, see http://imgur.com/ (click on "upload images"), you can upload images from the clipboard.

That's not the same, because it requires explicit website support. It's great that websites can support this if they want to, but I want to be able to upload file contents from the clipboard (and files from the file system that I've Ctrl-Ced) even if the website doesn't explicitly support it. So it needs browser help. Both Ctrl-V when the file input control is focussed, and also a right-click menu item on the control "Upload from Clipboard". Gerv
