- Looking for a good FTP program

I've tried several FTP programs but they're always missing some
features that make life simpler. I'm hoping someone knows a program
which allows me to do the 2 following things:
1) Select several files on the server, choose edit, and all the
selected files will be opened in my text editor (SciTE) and, very
important, in the same text editor window. I had an FTP program which
opened several files at once, but for each file it opened a new
instance of my text editor. My text editor allows opening multiple
files in one window, each file having it's own tab.
2) When i save (ctrl+s) in my editor, I want the changes applied to
the file on the server without having to click anything else. I don't
want some alert box blocking my access to the server files until I
confirm the changes.
Thanks a lot in advance!!

You should not be editing files that reside on the server. You should be
editing your site on your computer and then uploading the changed files
to the server. The way you're doing it leaves you with no local backup
and you could lose everything if the server fails or your host goes out
