A feature which I find very useful is to be able to set 'file filters' (as 'global settings' and/or per FTP location) which prevent certain files from being uploaded.
For example, uploading a complete image directory also uploads that unnecessary Thumbs.db file (on Windows). (The filter which should then be set, would be 'Thumbs.db').
Or, when uploading a precompiled .NET website all sourcefiles should not be uploaded (filter on '*.aspx.vb'/'*.aspx.cs').
It could work almost similar like the 'Filename filters' but instead of not showing certain files locally, the files matching the filters are not uploaded.
