Browsing FTP and WebDAV with Windows Explorer

Was looking at the possibility of mounting a FTP drive as a network drive, and found that there was several things in this area I didn't know. Note if using a Gmail account, then one can use the GMail Drive shell extension (Max 10 MByte files) to map it as a network drive, or use RoamDrive (No file size limit). This is not officially supported by Google, so it will only work as long Google doesn't start blocking it.

FTP is old and very insecure.
I use WebDAV in secure mode i.e. by using SSL.

Check out the BarracudaDrive home server with integrated WebDAV server:

A really easy to use and cool WebDAV client is Total Commander:
