FireFTP is one hot browser-based FTP client

With the maturing of web technologies like Flash and AJAX, web apps are suplanting the need for desktop apps more and more. PC Mag’s March issue recommended the Firefox extension FireFTP on their Best Free Software list so I decided to check it out.

Well, it has all of the features I need including SFTP support, so I’m going to start using it for my remote FTP needs. Previously I’ve been using a desktop app CoreFTP. (I’ll still stick with TotalCommander for a lot of stuff since I like the integration into that tried and true file manager.) Check out this gem if you do a lot of FTPing.
