flipper, on the otherhand, has been a ham-fisted ego trip for the maintainer and a pipe-dream that it could provide the functionality of konqueror ever since d3lphin/dolphin hit the repos in 2006/7. It has always been, and continues to, be a dumbed-down version of what konqueror was (and still is in kde3).
Utter, unadulterated horsecack.
There is no single overarching maintainer of Dolphin since many years ago. Whose pipe-dream are you talking about? The original developer's? Because it's certainly never been the intention that Dolphin should replicate the functionality of Konqueror. It was designed precisely for the opposite reason of streamlining and focussing on the file management role within Konqueror, without the overhead of all the heavy web browser elements. There were other efforts, e.g. ReKonq, to do a similar thing for the web browsing component.
It might be a more valid opinion to say that Dolphin doesn't provide every element of the file management functionality that you personally use in Konqueror. But Konqueror has continued being available and included in KDE Applications all these years. And if you're specifically referring to Konqueror 3.x, then you obviously have been continuing to use that to the present date as well along with the rest of KDE3. Would it not be rather the responsibility of the Konqueror developers working on the 4.x version to have ported the same functionality from 3.x, as opposed to being the fault of an apparent 'ego trip' of a developer of an alternative application?
Please try and avoid casting spurious aspersions. Your response is less flipper and more flippant. In another post, you've just written 'to each his own, I guess'. I'd stick with that notion.
And just to throw in my two cents to the OP, I previously used FireFTP within Firefox but sadly since the changes in FF Quantum it is no longer developed, so I switched to Filezilla. For the moment, that's displaying some of the same symptoms I used to see in gFTP: slow-downs, hang-ups. Maybe there's a setting somewhere that needs tweaking. FireFTP just got it right and performed solidly.
