File Browsers and SFTP/FTP

I just stumbled across something amazing. Some file managers (like Konqueror on Unix, and Finder on OSX) support FTP/SFTP directly! I was tired of using the command-line sftp client to upload complex directory structures (and not wanting to just tar everything) so I was looking at recommented clients (incidentally, FileZilla appears to still be highly recommended).  I notice that the Konqueror tool was listed. So i tried it:  in the folder path, just enter: sftp://user@servername.com

Unfortunately, OpenSuSE's default File Manager (Dolphin) does not seem to support it.

Mac OSX's Finder does - Go - Connect to Server and then enter ftp://user@servername.com    (note ftp not sftp; it will still use sftp).

Sometimes the things you stumble upon....
