Http and fttp

when you download something you normally get two options, fttp and http.

what is the difference?


ftp = file transfer protocol
http = hypertext transfer protocol

ftp for ftp-servers, when you want to make files available
http (mainly) for the world wide web, when you want to make html-files available

ftp is for files, so more efficient when downloading big files, but http works almost as good as well!


thanks very much
