DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

07/24/05: Is browser-FTP the end of traditional FTP?

Tech Support Pits:
From Vera=== Dear Webby, Thanks for showing me how to use a browser for quickly down- and upload files while traveling. It sure works slick! To think that browser FTP has been sitting under my nose and hiding for five years, that just frosts mah buns! Now that you let the cat out of the bag, is this the end of traditional FTP programs? Vera Dear Vera I have by no means keeping browser FTP secret and have occasionally mentioned it ever since XP came out. Browser FTP is a neat solution for simple down and uploads, but it will never completely replace professional FTP programs. You can't queue or "stage" a complicated upload from various different folders to different directories on the server, and then, when everything is ready, connect and upload in one batch. Also macros and site managers are not possible for browser FTP. Using your regular browser as an FTP is a neat additional tool to have, but it won't replace Leap or BulletProof or any professional grade FTP program. Have FUN! Dear Webby
