Web authoring programs like Dreamweaver that have direct FTP support.

Another contender in the protocol market could be WEBDAV with
SSL encryption; it's ostensibly designed for web authoring.

But general support for WEBDAV is also a bit spotty, and ssh+sftp
may be better suited to general remote file manipulation/system 
administration, tasks.
