Editors' Review

+

Rich in Web content, short on cash? This free, open-source FTP application is handy if you're looking for a basic tool to handle FTP transfers and don't want to part with your bucks.

The straightforward program interface offers translations in most of the world's major languages. Caching directories speeds up browsing FTP sites. The only thing we found missing is bookmarks for quickly switching among FTP locations.

The program lets you download or upload multiple files at once from and to several servers. If your bandwidth is somewhat limited, you'll appreciate a feature that lets you automatically adjust transfer speeds based on the time of day or date. FileZilla also lets you browse FTP sites even while you're transferring files. However, you won't find a task scheduler to automate transfers. To transfer sensitive information, the program supports the secure protocol SFTP.

Overall, FileZilla is a good tool that will suffice for managing smaller sites.

"Sourceforge Installer cleverly installs crapware BEWARE"

October 25, 2014  |  By adlersf

 |  Version: FileZilla 3.9.0.6

Pros

Actual software works good - But the software maker (Sourceforge) is Okay with making money off its users by allowing nefarious companies very CLEVERLY install crap ware with constant pop-ups and begging for money to "clean your computer". If Sourceforge is Okay partnering with such horrible companies, that how can you trust them with ANYTHING?

Cons

Malware - Crap ware - Stealth installer. I USED to LOVE Sourceforge Filezilla - NOT ANY MORE! Now they VERY CLEVERLY push crap-ware on your computer during installation. It is disguised VERY cleverly - And Although, technically they may be "doing it with your permission" - YOU have NO IDEA it happened until you get Constant, non-stop, Spammy pop-ups all over your computer screen that look like they are coming from some nefarious Russian hacker. SHAME ON YOU Filezilla. You have been ERASED from my GO-TO list of TRUSTWORTHY software makers. I will NEVER use ANYTHING even remotely associated with Filezilla any more. And Yes, I feel this way even though the actual software has been very good - but WHO CARES about that if the makers of this software are OK with making money off their users in such an underhanded way. If they can do this, what ELSE can or are they doing with the guts of their software that you have TRUSTED them to allow on YOUR computer??

Summary

Stay away.
