Can JavaScript be used to access the client’s printer?

Question:
Can JavaScript be used to access the client’s printer?

Answer:
No. JavaScript was designed so that malicious JavaScript programmers would have very little power to make their victims miserable. Denying JavaScript access to many of the client’s resources, including the printer, was one precaution that was necessary to achieve this goal.
