    I have searched and cannot find a thread dedicated to options for FTP apps for Mac. I have found stuff about FTP problems, but nothing about where to start so I can use my Universities "Filer" program.

    Thanks...

    I have heard of this thing you call "cyberduck". I will search it out and find its strengths and see if it fits my needs. :D

    Thanks yet again everybody!

    I still like the interface of Transmit. But (IIRC) cyberduck costs less (a lot less, I think it's free?).

    EDIT: Side note, I'm giving CD a whirl again.

    I use FileZilla. It's free and has a very traditional (although messy and slightly complicated) interface.

    This is what I've always used and recommend it because never had any problems with it and its free.

    Though I do have to agree the UI is a bit messy, especially on low res screens it get a bit cluttered but you get use to it. I'm not sure if you can change the UI because all I would use it would be to connect to my FTP, drag and drop files and thats it.


    TL;DR Version: FileZilla

    Another vote for Cyberduck! ;)

    It really works like a charm.

    RBrowser and RBrowser Lite are both pretty good. Not sure if they're around and if they've been updated, we still use an old version here in the office.

    I still like Fetch, but I know it costs money.

    Trasmit is good but Cyberduck is free and should satisfy most needs

    Have/Use both Cyberduck and FileZilla,. Highly recommend both apps.

    Both are stable. Both are free
