That is a subject substitution. I did not say that there were not ways
to have a status report for upload/download operations in browser. You
see such report in action every time you're downloading something from
the Web.

The problem is not solvable by using only default browser tools (HTML
elements and scripting) and server responces. If there is a need to
have status report at any price, you can do it by extending
browser/server core functionality. And you can do it without privacy
exposure like in the mentioned case. There are plenty of FTP Java
applets and ActiveX controls to embed onto your page.

P.S. 80 Gigs over FTP I hope? (I did not read proposal in
Otherwise it would be an athem to uneffectiveness.
