Workbench is a Ruby on Rails web application that uses the Arvados Rails SDK to provide a generic interface to Arvados.
(In a sense, it is the web browser SDK -- but we don't call it that because we don't expect anyone to write an application by scripting a web browser.)
It does not have any special privileges. Everything Workbench does can also be done with the command line tools or any other SDK.
