You can do so much now, and the options are whatever you want, so I think they will just keep adding new features as the needs command.
Maybe, as computers advance, there will be a way to have a remote connection to the host server WITHOUT an internet connection... publishing from a little application on your computer.
Some one said about death of FTP and emergence of drag and drop. Well, for your info, drag and drop has been a long time feature...Web Disk...does it ring a bell?
FTP cannot die, it is a protocol. Its like saying that in a few years time, http will die, if we are talking about the future of the internet.
I like the idea of websites hosted on your own machine; unless of course, you can meet the electricity and security costs.
A really nice FTP web-app would be, well, really nice.
