Best Firefox Add-ons: FireFTP


Personally I prefer to use a stand-alone FTP client, but I am sure there are many people out there who would love to be able to upload and download files from their servers directly from Firefox. The solution is an add-on called FireFTP.

Another benefit of this add-on is the possibility to use an FTP client on computers where you don’t have enough privileges to install new software (e.g., in your work, school and so on). The interface looks like any other FTP client out there:

fireftp firefox

It also comes with a lot of advanced features, including: directory comparison, syncing directories while navigating, SFTP, SSL encryption, search/filtering, integrity checks, remote editing, drag & drop, and file hashing.

Worth a look.

    I haven’t tried this yet. But so far, FileZilla is the best FTP client for me. It’s totally free and more stable than other FTP Clients that I have tried.

    Well this looks like a good ‘secondary’ ftp client.

    I use Filezilla as my primary ftp client.

    Great tip – I think that for many, FTP is still confusing and any simplification of the process has to be better for newer people trying to understand how manage a blog or website. Moving files, themes, content and zipped files can be overwhelming for some!!

    It took me awhile to understand the process and I pretty technical.
