    I use Transmit but its not free. Not expensive tho.

    There are actually quite a few for OS X, a quick Google Search and your off :) I've heard good things about CyberDuck, but can't say ive ever used it.

    I second CyberDuck. It's good, and it is FREE (both as in beer and as in speech)!!

    Cyberduck is a nice, free application, perfect for the occasional, non-critical ftp transfer. V. 2.6 was more than a little buggy, but most of those bugs should have been taken care of with 2.6.1 (and hopefully now with 2.6.2).

    On the other hand, if you have to rely on the ftp program for work/school, then the $25 spend on Transmit is well worth it. You can never underestimate the value of a rock solid ftp client.

    Also: For future questions, try searching/browsing a bit round here at MR... you'll find that many, many questions has already been answered... ;)

    I've never even heard of CyberDuck - wil check it out.

    I use CuteFTP - simply because when i swtiched i was used to using it on a PC.
    It works like a charm - There is a cost for it - but it wasn't expensive.

    There's always the 'ftp' command via Terminal if you're feeling hard core. You can use the Finder to connect to FTP servers too I think by using the Go->Connect To Server menu option.

    I think.

    I strongly recommend Interarchy (www.interarchy.com). I have tried CyberDuck and Transmit but really Interarchy is the one for me, it really is a fantastic app and at only $49 it's not a pain either. And the developers there are really helpful guys :)

    I like Fetch too. It isn't free, but if you're in education you get a free licence, which is rather good of them. You just have to apply online and they approve you and send you a link to a free edu licence. :)
