So, one of the first tasks (as a web designer) I needed to achieve was FTP-ing files to my host server.  I must confess that I’d already looked into this before buying the Chromebook, and I had already tested the ‘solution’, but nevertheless, I needed a robust workflow that wouldn’t let me down.

A good search of the Google Apps store revealed only one decent option (stop me and comment below if you know better) which is sFTP Client.  It picks up some negative reviews on the Google Web Store, but I can’t say I’ve experienced any great problems … yet.  I’m not a ‘power user’ by any stretch of the imagination but so far it’s handled a few WordPress uploads, inc theme and plugin files, without any hitch.
