    Clients can register the ftp:// URI scheme handler so that it launches when you click a hyperlink that points to a FTP resource.



    HTTP have a concept of resources. Resources can be downloadable and can be files.
    Most web servers can be configured to list files in a directory.
    A REST web application can also give you the directory listing in JSON format.

    HTTP verbs
    • GET - Downloads a resource (i.e a file).
    • POST - Uploads a resource (i.e a file).
    • PUT - Updates/modifies/overwrites an existing resource (i.e a file).
    • DELETE - Deletes a resource (i.e a file).
    The problem is that HTTP works only with URLs, and with documents at those URLs. While the server can be configured to send dir listings, as far as the client is concerned, that's just a document that happens to contain a bunch of links. There is no file and directory semantics in HTTP, so you can't do things like move a file, copy a file, or list files in a way that's semantically understood by the client, unlike with FTP which can be used in a file manager such as Dolphin.
    FTP of course has its own problems, and I could see something like SFTP or WebDAV being better.

    They still have to maintain the code. Then it might affect code changes and refactoring. Its good to shed some old things.
    FileZilla is a good FTP client, it is simple to use. Works the same as most other FTP clients.
    You connect to a server, and have two panes, the left one is local, the right one if the remote. Then you drag and drop to download or upload files.

    Chrome 72 includes V8 7.2, which has significant speed improvements.

    Or at least stop making sitcoms.
