Is there a Chrome (browser) extension like FireFTP from Firefox?

I've tried to find it without success

An alternative might be to use a 3rd party website such as

Again, not hugely exciting. Both the obvious looking "FTP" chrome extensions (Chrome FTP & FTP Client) are pretty poor, but you never know, YMMV.

I have put together a site using the net2ftp script that works pretty well. I put it behind and SSL so it is also secure.

How is this safe? Aren't the credentials submitted to your server? – Pacerier Nov 19 '14 at 9:54

Before you answer the Question, you must know what is FireFTP!

  1. FireFTP is not like
  2. FireFTP is not like net2ftp or chromeftp

FireFTP no need to access any external website, FireFTP like FileZilla directly access to your FTP Server using Firefox. FireFTP has 2 panel like Norton Commander.

In short, there is no app like FireFTP in Chrome! Sadly, but it's true when this answer written.

NOTE: That's why many users still STUCK ON FF because this FireFTP very helpful!!!

Yeah, slim pickings, I'm afraid.

You can use Chrome's built-in FTP client, but it's pretty basic. eg:

(You can skip the "username:password@" prefix and Chrome will prompt you for them instead.)

put "username:password" into the url if you reference it later... – akira Dec 7 '10 at 21:54
I think this is a step in the right direction. I just wish that either a Chrome extension would feed off of this and enhance it more, or Google would improve this system so that I can read/write files and folders, rename things, delete things, and change permissions. – Volomike Jan 9 '12 at 20:05

You just open a new tab or window and write your FTP address. It will then ask for the user and password details. You don't need to download any program or extension.

The FTP browser is read-only, so does a fraction of what FireFTP does – Andrew Alcock Jul 31 '12 at 9:05
