If those pages were simply success / error messages, they could be hosted
somewhere else than localhost.
In this case, I simply cannot web-host those scripts somewhere else than
localhost, otherwise, it will simply break the security (for AmazonS3,
OwnCloud and Mega.Nz).
It runs localhost in order to retrieve the credentials and create a proper
request that is sent to the respective servers.

I'm not sure I understood what you meant with "some services just refuse to
work if accessed from localhost", but any type of services did refuse and
it can be used to authenticate.

Thanks for the feedback!

Diogo Silva
