it's making me sad to read that all the time.
Can you please talk to the people running http://filezilla.de
and tell them to correct their text?
They wrote "bei gleichzeitiger Unterstützung möglichst vieler nützlicher Features entwickelt."
which means "while supporting as many useful features as neccessary".
This part is absolutely wrong, since you didn't - as read in a topic in this forum
- implement it, although it's easy to do and a useful feature
I love FileZilla (although the Qeue is kinda weird), but I can't see a useful reason to not implement an easy implementable feature.
Breaking the standard? I don't want to marry it, just use it. I don't care what it does as long as it works.
Sounds ignorant? Open your eyes! Internet Explorer is the most used browser, just because it's easy to use it instead of installing an other browser.
I hope you're aware of your target group. Is it the ftp-cmd-linux-geek-hacker-dude that cares about every and each fart and watches out that it's (oh my god beware) nothing like any Microsoft product or people using FileZilla because work has to be done and they need an easy, usable application theirfor?
I think the idea of keeping a standard is great if else it would have alot of different implementations of the same feature. But in this case there is only one possible implementation and it's already the most popular one, because (afaik) there's no alternative.
Also even if it "breaks the standard", it does it in a good way, doesn't it? Since when are distributed systems bad?
