Editors' review

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

The straightforward interface offers translations in most of the world's major languages. Caching directories speeds up browsing FTP sites, and multiple secure connection options ensure that you can move files around without concern. Bookmarking comes in two flavors: the Site Manager for all your major FTP locations, and QuickConnect for fast switching on the fly.

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 mid-transfer. The lack of a task scheduler is compensated for, in our eyes, by a powerful filter so you only see the files you need.

FileZilla is no monster, either, eating up a manageable 50 MB in memory. Clearly, this is one of the best FTP tools around.

    "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!
