re: I agree with this but how long until the sandbox widens so much that the differences aren't that important?

I hope for a very long time.

If any website of some kind could have some APIs to directly have access to my filesystem, or some other thing on this level, I'd go further than what I'm already doing (basically blocking every 3rd party content except images) and completely block javascript.

In-browser code execution can already cause some serious damage, I can only imagine what would happen if the APIs were to be more low-level/broad, especially around advertisement and tracking.
