Core FTP LE can exchange files with remote servers using FTP, SSH, and several other transfer protocols. Thanks to its thoughtful layout and impressive array of features, this free application not only beats its competitors, but it also outshines many paid products as well.

Pros

Support for most popular protocols: Core FTP LE handles FTP, SSH, SFTP, and HTML protocols, allowing you to pause or stop all transfers and resume them later. In our speed test, we were able to transfer 100MB in three minutes via SSH. But remember that all transfers are greatly affected by your network.

Remote searching: Have you ever had to hunt around for a file that you know is on the remote server, but you have no clue as to its exact location? Well, this freeware application takes care of that by allowing you to search for files out of the box.

Drag & drop integration: We were pleasantly surprised to discover that the app supports drag & drop functionality for initiating single-file as well as batch transfers.

Cons

Lack of simultaneous connections: You are not able to connect to several servers at the same time.

Bottom Line

If you run a website or regularly access remote files via FTP, you will surely benefit from an app like Core FTP LE. Considering its multitude of features, you'll be hard-pressed to find something you can't do with it.
