Dolphin is a browser too, so it should support the various protocols,

in fact not, http may be the only protocol Dolphin do not support. It
send the command to the default browser :-))

but ftp, ssh, sftp, fish, smb, yes (in fact all the protocols usefull
on internal network and pretty simple)

I was just experimenting on Windows and found IE and Edge browsers don't
support ssh or smb. Well, that's Microsoft for you.

As I mentioned, browsers were intended to unify access to a variety of
services. Way back in the dark ages, we used ftp, telnet, gopher,
archie, wais etc.. Browsers pretty well killed some of those.
