Use your web browser as an FTP client

Getting files from here to there is a big deal. Whether you're collaborating on a project, sharing vacation photos, or making your next great application available for download, you've got to get the files up on some server before anybody else can access them. There are no end of services available to host and share files, but back in the beginning was FTP. If you're starting from scratch, you may not want to go through the effort to set up and configure an FTP server, but if it's already up there, you might as well use it.

Back in the day, the only way you could get files up onto that FTP server was to fire up the dedicated FTP client. If your desktop is already littered with applications and documents, the last thing you probably need is to open up yet another one. So how about using your web browser?

Net2ftp is a free online service that lets you FTP files up to a server using only your web browser. Of course, you still need to tell it what your server name is and log in with your user name and password, but once you give it that info, you get a relatively full-featured FTP tool that you can use to upload, download, and traverse the directory structure of your online file repository, but without needing to open that additional app.
