How to open a local file in Google Chrome

In Google Chrome's minimalist brilliance, they seem to have forgotten a menu item to launch a dialog box to open a local file.

"On OS X, you can choose ""Open File"" from the File menu, or use the ⌘ + O keyboard shortcut.

For Windows and Linux, you can use ctrl + O. This does not seem to be referenced anywhere in the application, so you can feel special about using it."

Hit Ctrl-o and a magical, undocumented dialog box will appear.
