    FTP client with unzip ability

    Is there an FTP client that has an unzip ability?

    i.e. something that will allow me to upload a zip file and then allow me to unzip that file by right clicking or something

    I'm sure purists would claim that 'unzipping' is not part of FTP functionality
    Yes - but it wouldn't take a genius to add some sort of extra web functionality and make it become a 'hybrid' program

    I like using Filezilla - but then this doesn't have the unzip functionality
    I am forced to use my Cpanel file explorer - this sucks! I hate the clunky ancient interface

    Thanks

    I'm sure there's some security-related reason why FTP servers/clients don't include an unzip utility.

    If anyone knows of a website that can offer ColdFusion help that isn't controlled by neurotic, pedantic jerks* (stackoverflow.com), please PM me with a link.

    You can try the Webs FTP. Using their sub-domain, I was able to unzip my files from a .zip folder and upload them to the server client. It is important to know the steps of doing it.
