Comment (by Disreali):


 A typical web browser user only wants to have the ftp archive listed as it
 is in most modern web browsers, such as IE or Firefox, and would be
 confused by WebPositive's current behavior.

 Advanced users, which you seem to be, would already use a dedicated ftp
 client or ftp through the terminal.

 WebPositive needs to address a typical users needs, and not confuse them
 by opening a terminal window. As previously stated, Web+ needs to be able
 to handle ftp url's, as all modern web browsers currently do.
