Expandrive! What Apple left out…

expanddriveHave you ever wanted direct access to your online files?  Are you tired of the constant download and upload cycle of your FTP client.  Then look no further.  Expandrive is the answer just add your FTP, SSH, or Amazon S3 connection, and like magic a drive is mounted locally just like it was plugged directly into your Mac. I use it all the time for web development. It is great. Using BBEdit I can do a multiple file search and throw in the find and replace option and update all my pages at once.

If only the Finder would do this.  You can connect to a server using the Connect to Server option from the Go Menu, but unfortunately your left with a read only drive.  Maybe this is something Apple might change in the future, but for now Expandrive fits the bill.
