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.

    "Caution -- version 3.9.0.5 & browser hijacking"

    September 14, 2014   |   By carol5

    Version: FileZilla 3.9.0.5

    Pros

    Easy to use.

    Cons

    Version 3.9.0.5 from SourceForge.net hijacked all my web browsers and installed junk.

    Summary

    I haven't tried installing version 3.9.0.5 from CNET. However, installing this version which I got from SourceForge.net hijacked all web browsers on my computer -- changed my home web page and my search engine. Also installed a program that I didn't want. NEVER asked if I wanted these changes. This may only be for the installation from the SourceForge.net file but it may also be for all installation files!
