Load all files from a directory in JavaScript / HTML5

I want my site visitors to select a directory with files and then process them in JavaScript. I know how to let them select many individual files, but not entire directories, which is very important here.

How can I do that? File processing must be done in JavaScript. It should work in newest Firefox, Chrome and IE if possible.

I can't tell them to zip the files and then pick zip as it could be several GB of files to process.

Maybe Flash can help?
