(top posting fixed)

If you were using KDE you could simply fire up Konqueror and instead of the 
usual "http/https" urls, you simply type "sftp://user@host/" and voila! 
Pretty GUI sftp client.

If the remote machine doesn't talk sftp, try fish; "fish://user@host/".  
There's heaps of other URI prefixes too:

smb:// (for windows/samba shares)
nfs:// (for NFS shares)
man:/ (for reading man pages - eg, man:/sftp)
info:/ (for readin GNU info pages - eg, info:/gzip)
even, imap://
...plus heaps more :)  Google "KIOSLAVE"

Gnome is great, but I can't go past KDE's simplicity and tight integration 
(but with 2GB RAM in my lappy and desktop, it works *really* well! ;) )
