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.

I had a real bad connection to the internet and could not upload a large file (90MB) until I set the timeout in this program to zero. It let the file upload even when the connection was lost for more than a few seconds at a time.

"Fast and simple with a clean interface."

September 27, 2011  |  By mauriceo

 |  Version: FileZilla 3.5.1

Pros

I had it downloaded, installed, and connected to my site in about 2 minutes. I have used CuteFTP version 3.2 for many years. But they wanted $40+ for a new version. Filezilla is free. Hard to beat that price.

Cons

Would like a "back button" to return to the last directory I was on in the remote site, instead of hitting the .. - hardly a deal breaker.

Summary

Excellent software, great price - just git 'er done!
