My favorite FTP client

I’ve been using FileZilla for a couple years now.


The reasons why I’m such a big fan are:


  • It’s FREE! [GNU General Public License]
  • It has a simple, clean interface
  • It’s not bloated. It loads quickly and doesn’t take up a ridiculous amount of memory

My only complaints are:

  • If you have a file in the Windows clipboard (CTRL-C), I wished you could simply paste it (CTRL-V) into FileZilla to initiate an upload
  • There’s no easy way to move or copy entire web server folders.  You must first download the folder locally then upload it in the new location.

Does anyone have a better FTP client to recommend?
