Notes

Not supported means any file can be picked as if the accept attribute was not set, unless otherwise noted.

On Windows, files that do not apply are hidden. On OSX they are grayed out and disabled.

  1. Supports the type format (e.g. image/*) but not the extension format (e.g. .png)

  2. Offers appropriate file locations/input based on format type, but does not prevent other files from being selected.

  3. Does not allow any files to be picked at all

  4. Supports the type format but does not allow any file to be picked when using the extension format
