    I run a small personal website and I am currently using CuteFTP to upload stuff but sometimes I might find a funny picture or whatever and I have to load up the FTP and wait for it to login before I can upload. I know this only takes about 20 seconds but I'd love something like maybe in Windows Explorer that maybe I can simply drag and drop and it uploads.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    IE is a horrible horrible FTP client. End of story, it is way better to wait and use a different one then the hacked together thing that IE is for FTP.

    Any other ideas so?

    Something I can just drag and drop and maybe keep running in my taskbar that doesn't take up much resources.

    I actually found a Firefox plugin that integrates FTP into its tabbed browsing.

    It gets faster upload speeds than CuteFTP too.

    Its called "FireFTP".
