    I have been using CyberDuck as my FTP client for some time; but I have a love hate relationship with it. Somethings about it, I just LOVE, other things I cannot stand. Right now I'm in the despise mode with it; I cannot upload ANYTHING. It never starts the upload. I drop a file onto the directory I want (as I have always done) and it starts to process but then gets to a message saying, "preparing file for upload" and that's it, it never uploads anything.

    So, what is a decent (doesn't have to do anything special; just a nice Mac-like interface) FTP client?

    Thanks!

    I came in here to suggest Cyberduck but I hate it, too, really.

    Thanks; downloaded it as well.

    My only issue is the icon is HUGE and RED on my dock. Didn't they get the memo about blue?

    Filezilla isn't supposed to fade into the background. It's supposed to be in your face, climbing your Empire State Building. ;)

    That is only true if it was Filekong. Filezilla should be running around your downtown, kicking over cars and smashing buildings.

    Ya, that's my only beef too. The Ugly icon...blech. But the software works well, and the price is good...lol...so I live with it.

    I admit I don't do a ton of FTP, so I guess that's why I forgot about the icon.
