Actually, browsers support ftp too. All that's needed is a URL that
starts with ftp:// instead of http://.


Forgot to mention, browsers support even more, such as ssh:// or
smb://. (Try it to a computer you have ssh or smb access on.) The
browsers were designed to included multiple protocols, instead of using
separate apps such as WAIS, Archie etc. The part of the URL to the left
of :// specifies the protocol to be use.
