Connect to SFTP server?

Is there any way to use the finder to connect to an sftp server? I've been using macsftp carbon, but I don't really like it so much.

The Finder's FTP browser doesn't support SFTP, as far as I'm aware. Your best bet is to Search Google or Search VersionTracker.

Terminal does, if you don't mind command line. Open Terminal (under Applications | Utilities) then click File, then Connect to Server. Or you can use the shortcut Shift+Command+K.

If you don't like command line interfaces, use fugu

i also recommend transmit if the gui is a must... but nothing beats the command-line sftp
