FTP Verdict

Well, I think I found my replacement FTP software. FileZilla is “a fast and reliable FTP client and server with lots of useful features and an intuitive interface.” It’s also open source, and it provides all of the features I require of an FTP client. (I haven’t tried that server, and don’t have any plans to soon.)

It is still lacking in the niceties department: tool tips on the toolbar items, pretty icons, etc… Some of the features that I especially like are that it can store your config info in an xml file instead of in the system registry (this is great for when you need to reinstall windows, and you don’t want to lose your settings). It is also available as a zip file, or a traditional windows installer.

So, if you’re not completely happy with your current FTP client, I suggest that you give FileZilla a try. I think you’ll be impressed.
