CuteFTP is a file transfer application that's easy for beginners to use and has enough features to be useful to power users as well. From simple file transfers to Web site management, this client does just about anything. It uses drag and drop, bookmarks, automatic renaming, and download resuming to make FTP easier, and it includes a macro feature that you can use to record frequent tasks and play them back later with another file. Other key features include directory upload, directory compare, remote site editing, queued uploading and downloading, complete directory overwrite and delete, and a progress rate display. CuteFTP also offers MP3 and file searching; a persistent file transfer feature that automatically reconnects and resumes a transfer until the file requested has been successfully uploaded or downloaded; a Site Wizard designed to aid users in connecting to their FTP sites; integration with CuteHTML; right-click action on your PC to automatically send files to selected sites; connection/transfer error prompts; Windows Explorer integration; remote file editing; and the ability to delete to the Recycle Bin. Other CuteFTP features include automatic browser integration, which allows you to launch CuteFTP when you click an FTP URL from within your browser; Input Command, which allows you to directly input any command an FTP server supports; and removal of banner ads in the demo.
Version 5.0 of CuteFTP has passed Microsoft XP logo testing. It has new toolbar images, installer, and numerous bug fixes. It is available in English, German, French, and Spanish.
