WinSCP for Linux? Konqueror to the rescue!

WinSCP is an awesome desktop application that let’s you manage your files over SFTP using SSH with a nice UI, instead of just using the console to run the commands. I like the console and I’m used to ssh the remote hosts to work there but, sometimes, I wonder if there were a UI to work with (old habits).

The thing with this app is that it runs (AFAIK) only on Windows, so whenever I have to work with files on remote hosts (I use Linux most of the time) I have to admit that I miss that UI and how easy it is to transfer files between hosts.

Since I have to start dealing with data in remote hosts more frequently now, I started searching for an alternative on Linux, and to my surprise, Konqueror already offers this feature, and don’t even need to install new software.
