Editors' Review

+

FileZilla Client for Mac is an open-source program that allows you to make FTP transfers. It is a bare-bones application that is easy to use and which should suit the needs of anyone looking to perform basic FTP transfers.

Pros

Very easy to use: Many FTP programs both look and feel complicated, and an inexperienced user can easily feel overwhelmed. The FileZilla Client is very well laid out and easy to understand. As long as you have the information required to connect to an FTP server, you should have no trouble using the program, even if you have never used an FTP program before.

Reconnection button: There is a very handy button at the top of the client that allows you to reconnect to the last server you connected to with the program. If you don't use FTP very often and don't have an easy time remembering all the connection details, this is a great way to speed up and streamline the process.

Comprehensive help resources: If you click on the "?" mark in your menu bar and select "Getting Help," you are redirected to the FileZilla online help and wiki, which is a very comprehensive and useful resource for learning how to make the most out of the program.

Cons

Cramped display: When the program first opens, the display areas look very cramped. Although you can expand the way filenames are displayed, upon first launch everything is so cramped that it is difficult to read your folder names, making it even more difficult to navigate through them.

Bottom Line

If you've never used FTP before and need to send or receive a file, FileZilla Client for Mac is a fine option. It is easy to use, even when it is your first time. Beyond that, if you're confused in any way, the excellent online help should be able to answer any questions you might have.

"Viruses :/"

March 09, 2014  |  By contedefees5

 |  Version: FileZilla Client 3.7.4.1

Pros

Well, it's a nice program, but...

Cons

Had a group of people download this version of filezilla for a workshop on uploading webpages. 3 days later, two people's computers have crashed and won't restart. Before one of them crashed, the owner was able to run avast, which detected a whole host of viruses. I had suggested everyone download from here, as the version from sourceforge reportedly contained a lot of malware. Apparently that was a bad decision.

Summary

I recommend not downloading this until someone looks into whether this version has malware in it. Please be careful and back up your computer before downloading!

"Best free FTP tool for power users"

September 26, 2011  |  By steve_hoge

 |  Version: FileZilla Client 3.5.1

Pros

Very comprehensive feature set.
Easy to use, got it working and connected to my web host in 5 min.
Site Manager is a great feature.

Cons

It should auto-refresh periodically so file list stays live.
I little harder to use than the GUI-friendly tools, but good for power users.

"Simple on my mac"

April 17, 2011  |  By sfcb

 |  Version: FileZilla Client 3.4.0

Pros

The connection is quick and precise. The files that have to go in are clearly delineated - and it gives you immediate feedback on whether individual files have uploaded or not.

Cons

You have to know what files you are taking from and putting into.

Summary

I like it. It makes ftp transfers from a mac to a windows-based webhost work simply!

"Frecking ugly"

March 28, 2011  |  By tgbxe

 |  Version: FileZilla Client 3.4.0

Pros

Probably fast enough.

Cons

Ugly as sin.

Summary

The description says the interface is "straightforward". That's a nonsense considering how cluttered and polluted the UI is. Utterly poor UI design that needs to go on Hoarders and have everything thrown away while it cries on national TV.

Go look at Cyberduck - it's also open-source, but it isn't vomitously hideous.

 |  Version: FileZilla Client 3.4.0-beta1

Pros

It just works
Ability to FTP securely

That I can't set up a site profile until I have all the info (unlike Dreamweaver). Too text-heavy for my low-literacy students to use.
