Some users can only access their files via FTP and don't want to waste bandwidth downloading log files which can be MBytes in size every few minutes.
How about a mechanism to tail a file? Right-click and select "tail", which would open up a resizable window that would constantly show the last x lines of the file. It would use the same login settings that it used to get in via FTP. I would use this *all* the time.
