Filezilla FTP Client

Filezilla FTP Client

by Jason GreenFebruary 23, 2010

With so many FTP clients to choose from, finding the ‘right’ one can be a daunting task.

I’ve tried so many, from CuteFTP, FireFTP and even used Windows Explorer for FTPing, and I’ve found that FileZilla is a fast and reliable FTP client with lots of handy features. It supports resume on both downloads and uploads, timeout detection, firewall support, SOCKS4/5 and HTTP1.1 support, SSL, SFTP and more, all with an intuitive drag and drop interface.

Some Stand-out Features from typical FTP software

  • Supports FTP, FTP over SSL/TLS (FTPS) and SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP)
  • Cross-platform. Runs on Windows, Linux, *BSD, Mac OS X and more
  • IPv6 support
  • Supports resume and transfer of large files >4GB
  • Tabbed user interface
  • Drag & drop support
  • Configurable transfer speed limits
  • Filename filters
  • Directory comparison
  • Remote file editing
  • Synchronized directory browsing
  • Remote file search
