My ratingWrite review
fast loading and simple interface
was not connecting to the remote server. tried aceFTP and had no issues doing the same.
Comfortable user interface
easy to understand
works well and fast
not a ton of extra features with cluttering buttons
no quick links to bookmarks (but I don't know any ftp program that has this)
I use this program to manage websites.
It works, it's reliable, and it's free.
None that I have found.
Download it, and use it!
Easy to use, multi-threading, resume broken downloads (hence leech), setup installation not required, fast, works with Win 7, PassV mode, NOOP, bookmarks
Out of date, too bad that Jan? is still not around to update this software because I've been relying on for years, but still works great with Win 7. It probably isn't as secure as some of the newer SFTP clients, but who cares...
LeechFTP is highly recommended for beginning to advanced users. It still works with Windows 7 and it's still as fast (no comparison to browser FTP). It's a no-brainer for those who intermittently need an FTP client to download files.
- 100% free with no hidden or harmful content
- Very easy to use for pretty much anyone
- No ads or popups
- Small in size
I honestly have not found any cons other then possibly the bogus error message you get when you first run it, but it doesn't affect its performance.
I have been using Leech FTP for over 8 years now & I love it. It works great with Windows 98, 98 SE, ME, 2000, XP, 7, and even pretty well under WINE on Ubuntu Linux. Its my #1 choice when ever I need a good reliable ftp client to get my files uploaded or downloaded. Its simple as someone else said & even while its out of date its still #1 for me & all I will use.
Small and lite
Not the best UI
I'm going to try another FTP client. While this works it's not what I am looking for
This was the first FTP client I tried with a multi-threaded upload approach, which means you can start uploading lots of files to your website and *while* it's working you can keep browsing folders and work. No waiting for uploads to finish.
There is an off-by-one bug somewhere: when working with *some* servers it will remove the first character from downloaded (HTML) files. This bug obviously sucks badly..
It's such a shame that the author abandoned this lovely little piece of software. If only he had open-sourced it..
I've not looked for another FTP program for many years. With a few bug fixes and some additional polish I could have kept using it.. :-( Now, due to the mentioned off-by-one bug I need to find something else..
Listen folks if You are looking for something easy, fast, pretty safe, and best of all Free..
This FTP could most likely do the Job.. although it has many Pros / Cons written already I must say that.
I welcome You to contact Me if Yu would like to better the system!
Threads make uploading so much more faster.
Lot more reliable than uploading through windows explorer.
Wish that it had a link in right click menu to refresh. Not a big deal as you can hit F5 and do the same.
Its a really fast, lightweight, full featured ftp client! I like it :)
I've not seen anything :)
