I assume you're aware that the "Go" menu in the Finder is essentially an FTP client. (Connect to Server...)
True, you could use that, but the Finder's implementation of FTP leaves a lot to be desired...
Not sure what you mean.
There are certain things the finder cannot do with FTP. I don't remember exactly what, but I remember hearing it was crippling enough to warrant not even trying it and going with a 3rd party client.

Indeed. Finder can only mount FTP as read-only volumes, which is pointless if you need to upload any files to your server.
