Thanks to recent improvements in browser handling of clipboard, direct integration of the local clipboard is now possible. Cut/copy via the keyboard can be written to work in all cases, while the general case will require either:
The Chrome Allow Clipboard extension.Our Clipboard Permission Manager extension.
- Browser support for prompting for clipboard permission upon use of the standard execCommand() (currently only IE11).
The situation for Chrome, Firefox, etc. is suboptimal, but still far better than before, there is hope that other browsers will follow the mechanism used by IE11 and allow webapps to request permission. The negative effects of the old style of clipboard integration are no longer an issue.
