download folders in http: directorys

My FTP allows me to access folders as a standard http directory.
I can download files from there. But, obviously I can't directory just download a folder.
Is there any way to download full folders from a http directory similar to a FTP program lets you do this with folders in a FTP?

FTP's transfer rate is a lot slower.

Can I do this using SmartFTP?

SmartFTP doesn't support HTTP yet.

Are there plans to do this?

Yes. But there is not much demand for it.

When can we look forward to that release?
Is it hard to implement?

I'm sure there's not much demand, because people assume it can't be done.

It'd be really useful.

I'm sorry but there is no ETA.
