I would like to have an "Open in Web Browser" option like when using FireFTP in Firefox. Is there a way to do this? I'm pretty new to this application, and have little knowledge of Scripting/Automation.

Using 4.3.3 (Build 1340)
Windows XP
Chrome is my primary browser
My htm and html files are not currently assigned to open with a browser, but open with notepad. (I perform lots of manual editing)

There's technical reason why this cannot be done easily. It is described here:

How is this overcome in FireFTP?

In FireFTP, an advanced setting for each session includes a Host address and directory for the "View on Web" function. Then you can right-click a file on the server to view on web and it appends the url and loads in the browser.
