      So if I setup my own FTP server or use one on the internet I cannot access it with Chrome ?
      Good to know!
      I thought that Chrome can be a real alternative to Firefox, but I see now that they make a joke of it.

        Why would you setup your own FTP server at this point?

          Why not?
          Maybe I want to transfer some files from one computer to another.

              A samba server?: Facing the internet? Are you out of your mind?

              Notoriously insecure.

              Another fact is that FTP provides a structured directory listing while HTTP does not have a standard way to list directories (you can format directory listings with HTTP but everyone invents their own way to do it rather than use a standardized means to do so). This makes things really difficult if you need to write scripts to query directory listings.

                You can't use any of the better alternatives like say sftp?

                  I guess Google needs to tell all the scientific data repositories that allow public access via ftp (and refuse to support sftp) that they need to stop using it.

                    https, zsync, torrent, rsync, git-annex, send.firefox.com , there are just so many ftp alternatives.
