FireFTP and WinSCP: FTP, SFTP, SCP...
Jan 3, 2006
The only thing lacking in WinSCP is support for regular FTP. Since FTP is an insecure protocol, I personally use SFTP as far as possible, but sometimes I do need to connect to servers that only support FTP. That's where I've decided to use FireFTP, a free FTP client extension for Firefox. I remember trying this a few months ago, but it wasn't really up to the mark. However, it has improved over time, and the current version is fast, lightweight and supports all the core functionality of a good FTP client. Plus, it's nice to be able to use Firefox's tabbed browsing capabilities to open up multiple FTP sessions in different tabs.
If you're a Firefox user, I suggest giving FireFTP a try. If you use SFTP/SCP (as you should be), WinSCP is definitely the way to go.
