I'm trying to get a link like this to open the Transmit FTP app when clicked from Chrome (I'm on version 16, using OS X 10.7):

Clicking a link like that that will simply open up a file-browser-like view in Chrome. SFTP links work great. They open right up in Transmit.

(FTP links work fine in Firefox (it'll ask you once which app you want to open). Safari thinks for a bit and then opens Transmit, which throws an error. But my main browser is Chrome.)
