    Could anyone suggest a decent, very user friendly FTP program? I would prefer a free one (naturally), but anything under 10 bucks would be fine (if it exists) . Thanks

    i use cyberduck. It's pretty user friendly and gives me a lot of control of my server. Also it's FREE. Donations accepted.

    Go Here For CyberDuck

    I like Fetch, it's very easy to use and has a lot of features.

    RBrowserLite is better than Cyberduck. Cyberduck only gives you one column of view at a time, and you can't delete items. (Somebody correct me if I'm mistaken, but I couldn't find a way to get around that.) Also, RBrowserLite doesn't require as much monitor room as Cyberduck does, though it does initially use a few more windows that needed.

    Both are free. Here is RBrowserLite:

    So is Micro$oft. (cough, cough)

    I tried Transmit a long time ago, like a year ago or so, and it was pretty simple to use (except that FTP was very new to me at the time). But because it was Shareware, I used up my trial period. A lot of people recommend Transmit simply due to its Finder-like GUi and apparent ease of use.

    Open Safari, type ftp://apple.com/ as the url, and boom! it is the Finder. :D

    I get asked for my password (eventually), entered...but then keep getting asked for my password, even after typing it in correctly. Finally, I get a "could not connect" message and no Finder window. I guess Safari can't handle FTP as well as I'd like (though I wouldn't trust Safari for anything).

    You can delete a file in Cyberduck from the File menu (or by typing command-delete). It took me a while to find it too.

    I highly recommend downloading Transmit (www.panic.com) to see if you like it. $25 is not too much for great software if you decide you like it.
