For that you need to design webserver on ftp server itself in such a way that when user opens the webpage in that you can have upload and download buttons....

Browsers work with HTTP (hypertext transfer protocol), not FTP (file transfer protocol) so browsers aren't designed to use FTP by default.
The only options open to you are therefore:
1. just use FTP clients
2. download fireftp
3. set up a web application on your server to service uploads and downloads through HTTP.

Can't you, with most browsers, simply use ftp://xxxxxx instead of http://xxxxxx? Works fine with Chrome, Firefox and IE at least. No need for a dedicated FTP extension unless you want sessioned downloads or uploading.
