Editors' review

FireFTP gives you the power of a top-notch FTP client from within your Firefox browser. It can handle multiple accounts and remember different logins, passwords, and connection settings for each. It supports authenticated TSL, authenticated SSL, and implicit SSL for secure transfers, drag and drop, and CHMOD changes. The plug-in works across platforms, lets users import and export account settings, and supports directory comparisons and synchronization, time-stamp syncing, file hashes, and auto-reconnect.

Setting up the program is as easy as using it. It's accessible either from Tools in the menu bar or you can add a FireFTP icon to the toolbar via customization options. You can also set the program to open in a new window or in a new tab, and it ran conflict-free with other major Firefox extensions like Tab Mix Plus, AdBlock Plus, or FoxyTunes.

Most surprisingly, it didn't cause any system sluggishness or freezes, nor did it instigate a massive memory leak of the kind that Firefox has become known for. There are, however, a few drawbacks. Windows Vista support has been spotty, and because of Firefox limitations, the app can't transfer files larger than 4GB, nor can it access network folders. Proxy support works for some, but not others. Despite these problems, the plug-in was stable, easy to use, and provided enough advanced features to make it worth coming back to.

    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.
