This method works for Mac OS X 10.6 or above (Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion).

# Open Finder

# Click Go > Connect to Server..

# Input the web folder address.
Click [+] to add it to your favorite list.
Then, click [Connect].

Check Remember this password in keychain.
Click [Connect].

# The web folders appears under the SHARED section in Finder. You can directly create or edit files on the web folder just like a normal drive.
However, if you are using a slow internet connection or is editing a big file, we suggest you to download the file to your computer, edit it, and then upload it back to the web folder. You can use Drap-and-drop to upload/download the file.
