Hi there

Even if the mass uploader was not thought for mass uploading :-), mass 
uploading with the Flash uploader can work very well (given an 
enviromnent without the failure causes mentioned before). For an 
integrator it's no problem to deactivate the Flash uploader if he knows 
that it won't be working on most company machines.

Using FTP is not an option for the "normal" TYPO3 editor. You need 
software, credentials and you need to know how it works.

At our university, IE 8 for Win XP is the standard browser (Firefox 
available but deeply hidden in the sub menus) and the Flash plugin is 
installed. The Flash uploader is heavily used. I know of other public 
institutions where it's even worse (but they're not using TYPO3 :-)).

I think one of the reasons for dropping the Flash uploader might be that 
the current implementation is horrible and therefore it's not worth 
spending time for improving this imperfect but usable (and IMO used) 

So if you really think that it needs to go, do it :-). But don't 
underestimate the number of people actually using this feature.

Best regards,
