Ask anyone which application is the best software for FTP (file transfer protocol), most of them will point in the direct of Filezilla. Filezilla is a free FTP solution that provides both server and client applications; furthermore, it is an open source software, distributed under the terms of the GNU GPL. In other words, you can download this for free and use it for personal purpose, as long as it is within the GNU GPL agreement.

Having used Filezilla for a long time, I have absolutely no complaint with this software as it provides almost everything that is required for file transfer. In addition to common FTP communication, it supports SFTP (Secure FTP) and FTPS (FTP using SSL). In the latest release of Filezilla Client, some of the bug were fixed.

Bug Fixes

  • * Fix crash if renaming directories using the local directory tree
  • * Rebuilt official binaries to revert a regression in wxWidgets causing memory corruption

Below are some of the enhanced features of Filezilla:

  • * Easy to use
  • * Supports FTP, FTP over SSL/TLS (FTPS) and SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP)
  • * Cross-platform. Runs on Windows, Linux, *BSD, Mac OS X and more
  • * IPv6 support
  • * Available in many languages
  • * Supports resume and transfer of large files >4GB
  • * Powerful Site Manager and transfer queue
  • * Drag & drop support
  • * Configurable Speed limits
  • * Filename filters
  • * Network configuration wizard
  • * Remote file editing
  • * Keep-alive
  • * HTTP/1.1, SOCKS5 and FTP-Proxy support

Hence, it is as good as you can get with any paid version of FTP software. With the recent economy downturn, everyone is looking towards the direction of cutting costs and implementing cost-saving measures, this can be one alternative solution that can possibly help you or your small business save costs!
