    Interarchy is very good! It displays directories just like folders in the finder. Great for dragging and dropping items as well.

    I went on a mission to find the best free ftp client when my interarchy trial period ran out. After a few months using every other program I could, I just ended up purchasing Interarchy.

    transmit. i used fetch for years only to quickly lose interest after using transmit once. i have a registered copy, best little piece of software that i own.

    panic is just an overall great company, great customer service.

    Transmit...hands down. Fetch is good, but still lacks SFTP capabilities unless I'm mistaken.

    I've been using what was supposed to be a demo of Fetch for over a year now. It asks me for money but I just wait 30 seconds and it works. Weird, but I like it. I just read a very useful tutorial on FTPing with the terminal in OS X. Works well, lots of detail though.

    Another vote here for transmit. Fine app - worth the money.

    For me Interarchy is fine, so I purchased it a while ago. ;)

    Casting my vote

    I use Transmit (unreg) for moving a lot of files, or when I'm feeling lazy. Otherwise, I use the good old CLI ftp. mmmm CLI...
