Better FTP Software
Better FTP Software
I tried a couple other trialware types to see what I thought. The 2 I tried seemed okay, but not better enough over FileZilla, particularly since it's free.
Then I tried another one, which I originally THOUGHT was trial-based. After I tried, it I got to looking for the "buy" link to see how much the thing would cost, b/c I was really liking it, thinking it might be worth actually paying for. When I went to the About page, it said Freeware! I apparently had missed that part, or forgotten from trying the various ones..
Here's the one I tried and really liked:
It's called BitKinex by Barad-Dur. The publisher's name means Dark Tower, or so I found online. So, I suppose that's why they picked the icon for a dark tower for the application.
Anyway, I practically got teary eyed from how well this ftp client app works. I mean, besides all the normal drag-drop type things, most everything just makes sense. It's a nice clean, simple, to the point interface that is somewhat visually attractive, perhaps just b/c it's a clean interface.
Want to run shell commands over ssh? Just click an icon in the middle of the app. It uses your ftp account credentials to log you into a shell window, from where you can type to your heart's content!
Well, if you've not heard of the program, it's b/c it's apparently brand new. It looks like I must have found it the day it came out, or the day after, on download.com!
And it was way down the list, don't even know how I found it, almost.
My tears of sadness were turned to tears of joy! Okay, no, I did not REALLY cry over an FTP client, but it is definitely, so far, a breath of fresh air.
Here's the ftp client home page:
I've not even covered the tip of the iceberg yet, as I just used it so far for drag and drop. I did open the putty app from the interface, and it ran smoothly, logging in, but I've not tried to do anything with that yet.
So, if you're looking for a better FTP client than what you already have (in Windows), then look no farther!
