Open option might be to use FireFTP (http://fireftp.mozdev.org/) which is a free add-on module for the Mozilla Firefox browser.  It apparently supports both SFTP and FTPS.

Windows Explorer and Internet Explorer (not sure which "explorer" you want) do not support Secure FTP. If using Secure FTP is most important to you, you can use an FTP client. If using "explorer" as the client is most important to you, I recommend Microsoft Sharepoint or something similar.
