I was wondering if there are any practical limitations to the floowing

Certainly. You can convert the payload into a *data:* or *blob:* URI (HomeCam
does that <https://yoursunny.com/t/2017/how-homecam-works/>), assign it to
href attribute of an <a> element
<https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element/a>, and assign
the filename to download attribute.

I remember there was a filesize limit  (~2GB?) that could be downloaded.
It's Chrome's limitation <https://stackoverflow.com/a/43816041>. Firefox
could create a larger BLOB.

Yours, Junxiao
