Hello all,

I am looking for a good FTP client. I have tried several and none give m what i need. I would like the client to be slip in half, one side to brows the server im connected to and the other to browse my computer. then all i have to do is drag it to the other side to DL it or UL it.

There has to be one out there, I have looked but cant find one.

if you know of one please let me know...

BTW preferably free!!!

i would recommend Panic if you are willing to pay the few $$, or Fugu for free.

I used both, and while panic took precedence, I paid for it... i was going to use it, fugu is just as good...

I use CuteFTP and the one that comes with Dreamweaver, they work.

But I am interested with Fugu, could you link it please.

Actually, the program is Transmit and Panic is the company that makes it. This is the one I recommend also.

I believe you can use it for free, but just after 15 days the Sessions/Favorites is limited.

Another vote here for Transmit. It's the best FTP app I've used.

True... It has been a while since I used it though as I have to use Absolute FTP on a PC at the moment UGH!... Transmit is the dogs boll**** of FTP clients.

Fugu got a mention on the Mac Geek Gab podcast for good free, open source apps this week.

I am a student, and my "website" is a place to have fun messing around with HTML and the like. I have come to love Cyberduck, and it gets my vote. (Check out Smultron if you need a functionality, simplicity and a really good UI in a text editor for the web.)

Cyberduck is great. I use it for all my ftp needs.

I wish they'd build in a better file browser though. The current one is really bothersome to navigate through. Some web-based CMSes have far better file management than Cyberduck.
