Editors' Review


FileZilla Portable is a handy and free file transfer protocol (FTP) client, something that's been available in many forms since the earliest days of the Internet. What's different about FileZilla Portable is the "portable" part; unlike other FTP clients, the whole program is totally portable. You can install it on a USB flash drive, insert the drive in any computer, and use FileZilla without installing anything else and without leaving any personal information behind.

FileZilla Portable (formerly Portable FileZilla) is, as the name suggests, a portable version of the well-known FileZilla FTP client. It's one of many free portable versions of popular open-source applications developed and published by PortableApps, which also offers portable versions of Mozilla's Firefox Web browser and the OpenOffice.org office productivity suite. Portable applications are big fun in small packages, and we're big fans here at the testing lab; we're fans of open-source code and freeware, too. But FileZilla Portable, like other PortableApps freeware, is particularly nice, with a well-designed graphical user interface that's a welcome departure from the starkness of most portable software. It installs easily on your USB drive, iPod, external hard drive, or any portable storage device, or you can run it from a CD. It works as well as the full-size FileZilla, but it goes everywhere and leaves no trace.

FileZilla Portable is free, and it works well in both Windows Vista and 7. Try it; you'll like it. Give some of PortableApp's other cool tools a try, too.

"Favorite of all FTP proggy's"

June 29, 2013  |  By DaDreamWizard

 |  Version: FileZilla Portable 3.7.1


Does what it should fairly easily. Being familiar with the way ftp programs work is always a plus, and there's no choice but to learn. But it's simple to use. As functional as the one's that cost dollars and it just seems cleaner, less cluttered.


none really - first time I ever installed was up and running and retrieving within 5 minutes. No Fumbels McGee menu's or confusion.


Had 75% of the ftp programs over the years. And I just took a liking to this and it didn't cost a dime.

Oh there's ftp programs that have that super compact look - nice yes. But they're involved, I'd even go to say confusing at times.

Bottom line, it works nicely to say the least. And if your new to this, if I were you I'd go with this. If this were the first ftp app I'd ever had I'd have avoided way to many love/hate relationships with other software.

note: I just changed over to using portable versions when feasible. Hence this review goes for both the installer version and portable versions.
