    Looks good, but why is this best when there’s putty and winscp?

    I said the best because you will use ssh within the browser especially if you are using a public computer and you can not install anything.

    Handy addon but doesn’t work for versions below 4 ? Didn’t get installed on my FF 3.6.16:(

    By the way, did you observe any extra slowness when using FireSSH ?

    Crackpot idea of the week: building a security-sensitive application on a wobbly something like javascript in an invite-the-world-to-your-computer application like a web browser.
