About 100% of web users have a browser and nearly 100% have no idea what a stand-alone FTP client is.

dyhchong: neilbradley: That's just it - the vast majority of site don't have logins/CC taking, anyway, so it's an unneeded burden to a lot of web sites.

You obviously didn't read my post.

Have you an example of one?
