File Transfer Protocol may not necessarily be the safest way to transfer files, but it's still one of the most popular. If you need to use FTP to move files in your network, the browser add-on FireFTP makes it easy. It's Fire(fox) + FTP ... get it?

FireFTP only works with Firefox, of course. To use it, you need to have the browser installed first. Then once you've approved the addition of the FireFTP extension, it's tucked away nicely in the "Web Developer" menu.

FireFTP employs the dual-window interface of most standalone FTP clients, running within a standard Firefox tab or window. The add-on supports all the sorts of connections that you'd expect from a standard FTP client and can handle several different accounts. FTP accounts can be grouped by category, both of which are accessible via drop-down menu. The options for FireFTP are available from the standard Add-Ons "Options" button or from the "Tools" button in the main FireFTP interface, and include everything a standard FTP user would expect--proxy settings, concurrent transfer limits, duplicate rules, compression options, and filters are only the beginning.

One noticeable limitation of FireFTP is that it can't process files larger than 2GB. Transferring files within that file-size limit, however, was remarkably fast, pushing the limits of my consumer-level broadband connection.

If you need a simple FTP program with few frills, FireFTP fits the bill. It's rare to find a Firefox extension that would make any user switch browsers, but if you're already using Firefox and need to transfer files over FTP, you should be very happy with FireFTP. It works seamlessly while still having enough features to please power users.

    "It works with no fuss."

    October 03, 2009   |   By parvan

    Version: FireFTP 1.0.4

    Pros

    Easy to install, easy to use, and does what I need.

    Cons

    I haven't found anything to complain about.

    Summary

    I'm not an FTP guru, but I do need to download or upload files to FTP sites several times a year. I've tried quite a few different FTP clients, and FireFTP is the most trouble-free that I've found.

    "Fast, easy, no hassle FTP transfers"

    December 24, 2008   |   By Tim Orwick

    Version: FireFTP 0.99

    Pros

    Familiar folder/file arrangement of both local and remote directories. Drag & drop from one to the other.

    Cons

    It would be better if it would remember FTP password for connection or flag the password blank so Foxfire could pick it up and remember it.

    Summary

    Straightforward directory-to-directory drag & drop file transfers.

    "Works For Me!"

    July 29, 2008   |   By Kyrna

    Version: FireFTP 0.99

    Pros

    I only have three sites to work on so I don't need all of the extras that so many FTP programs have. What I do need is to be able to connect with SFTP and change file permissions, and this client works perfectly for my needs, which I can say for a few of the programs that aren't free. It's also very easy to use; I figured it out in literally under a minute. It's quite intuitive.

    "Everything I need in an FTP Client."

    June 29, 2008

    Version: FireFTP 0.99

    Pros

    For a free program it is just wonderful. From what I can see, FireFTP has most features that you find in paid programs.

    "Simple, effective"

    March 26, 2008   |   By xrysostom

    Version: FireFTP 0.97.1

    Pros

    Installation is a breeze, setting it up isn't much more difficult, although there isn't a lot of documentation. I've not run into the file size barrier yet but in other areas, it's been a solid performer.

    Cons

    Setup isn't completely intuitive and that hurts when the documentation is sketchy. I'm glad I wasn't a newbie when I started running it.

    "Perfect for Me!"

    December 23, 2007   |   By GlamourDomme

    Version: FireFTP 0.97.1

    Pros

    First, it's simple, easy and takes up virtually no space on my hard drive, unlike many other FTP software products. Second, it loads immediately via the Tool function on the Firefox browser menu bar. It suits my needs perfectly and I really like the no-fuss aspects of file transfer that FireFTP offers. I'm very satisfied.
