    November 04, 2011   |   By theQuicker1

    Version: Leech FTP 1.3

    Pros

    Comfortable user interface
    easy to understand
    works well and fast
    not a ton of extra features with cluttering buttons

    Cons

    no quick links to bookmarks (but I don't know any ftp program that has this)

    Summary

    I use this program to manage websites.

    "Great piece of software"

    July 29, 2011   |   By rbuch66

    Version: Leech FTP 1.3

    Pros

    Easy to use, multi-threading, resume broken downloads (hence leech), setup installation not required, fast, works with Win 7, PassV mode, NOOP, bookmarks

    Cons

    Out of date, too bad that Jan?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...

    Summary

    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.

    "Free & Easy to Use"

    March 19, 2011   |   By HaoleBoyz

    Version: Leech FTP 1.3

    Pros

    - 100% free with no hidden or harmful content
    - Very easy to use for pretty much anyone
    - No ads or popups
    - Small in size

    Cons

    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.

    Summary

    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 Its simple as someone else said & even while its out of date its still #1 for me & all I will use.

    "great tool, a pity the autor stopped maintaining it"

    April 13, 2010   |   By hallvors

    Version: Leech FTP 1.3

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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..

    Summary

    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..

    "Best FTP software ever"

    April 13, 2009   |   By Mehendra

    Version: Leech FTP 1.3

    Pros

    Threads make uploading so much more faster.
    Lot more reliable than uploading through windows explorer.

    Cons

    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.
