I've tested the upload functionality and it doesn't seem to be working. Probably the reason is that I use an Automatic proxy configuration URL. A progress window appears (very similar to the download one) during a second or so. Anyway, it's too quick to allow me to take a screenshot. I can see that the total size stated there is 10 kb, whereas the real size of the file with which I tested it is 749 kb.

It's weird that FTP upload doesn't work whilst HTTP upload (e.g., to Yahoo! Briefcase) works very well.

An enhancement I suggest is to change the name of the Download Manager to Transfer Manager and also list there the uploads, given the similarity between downloads and uploads.
