Apologies for resurrecting an old thread, but an HTML5 chunk uploader as Hyunsoo
previously suggested would actually be very useful for my organisation, in terms of
streamlining our workflow for less technically able users. I was wondering if there was
any intention to include functionality like this at some point, although I'm perfectly
happy to use other methods if there isn't.

It's also possible to use the "FTP Upload" functionality with a protocol
other than standard FTP (i.e. with scp) so that users can upload scp'd files directly
to a history.

into smaller pieces so that regular users can upload large files through Galaxy's GUI
without external FTP tool.
