FTP is also a popular protocol used by website builders to transfer files between computer and web server.

AdvicesAcademy.com lists out popular and 10 best FTP Client for Mac and Windows PC(best ftp software ever). FTP or File Transfer Protocol is a standard protocol which is used to transfer files from one location to another through the Internet or a file network.

While trying to update one of my blogs, I tried to search for several alternative FTP clients for my Mac. And here are the results

A. Multiple OS FTP Clients

1. Classic FTP –> is a fully featured, free FTP client available for Mac OS X and Windows. It has a “Mirror and Upload” tool which will scan a selected local folder and upload any files that do not exist on the remote folder. The application also allows you to synchronize navigation of a local and remote folder.

2. CrossFTP –> is designed to be an easy-to-use client. It has a two-pane browser-like user interface which is simple to learn and use. Multi-tabs design facilitates managing and connecting multiple FTP sites simultaneously in a single window. It’s written in Java so it would work in any Java-enabled machine.

3. FileZilla –> is a popular Windows-based FTP client. I didn’t even know that there was a Mac version of FileZilla until I researched for this article. I had high hopes when I was about to use this app for the first time. But personally, I think that the Mac version is not as easy to use as the Windows versionTransfer Files by FTP with FileZillaTransfer Files by FTP with FileZillaRead More. FileZilla is also available for Linux.

B. Mac-only FTP Clients

4. Cyberduck –> is a open source product licensed under the GPL and free to use. It is available in many languages and most translations are contributed by users. It is voted by many Mac communities as one of the best FTP clients available for Mac. Cyberduck is also available as a dashboard widget.

5. OneButton FTP [No Longer Available] –> is a graphical FTP client for Mac OS X with a strong emphasis on simplicity, drag and drop usability, and file queuing. It allows you to easily transfer files to and from remote servers, such as the ones hosting your websites, simply by dragging files to and from your computer. At the time of writing, this app is no longer supported by the author, but still works fine.

6. MacFusion –> is an open source Mac application that allows you to work with files on servers across the internet, as if they were sitting on your computer. Macfusion presents as a Volume in Finder. Macfusion works with SSH/SFTP and FTP servers. This app requires Leopard and Google’s MacFUSE. You can learn more about how to set up MacFUSE on the wiki howto page or the Quicker Start Guide page.

C. Dashboard FTP Widgets

7. Ãœbertragen –> is a widget designed to transfer files, be it to a FTP server, to another Mac running Ubertragen on your local network (through Bonjour) or to one of your Bluetooth devices.

8. Fire Widget –> is a drag-and-drop FTP upload widget. It has a simple interface and runs nicely. Just drop a file, the gate slides up, the file gets transfered, and you are done.

There are others, of course, which did not make it to the list simply because of my lack of knowledge. So, if you know any other alternatives, please share using the comment below.

  1. Do not use ClassicFTP it is sooo slow and to my knowledge it lacks major features such as CHMODEing.

  2. SublimeText is a really good one. But unfortunately it's only for windows.

  3. Classic FTP is a dog! It's so sloooowwww!

    Will try the FireFox FTP next!

  4. FireFTP and Fetch for me. For simple jobs, Go=>Server... and type ftp://server is also adequate.

  5. I've been using Filezilla for a long time. I personally found it much superior than Cyberduck. chmod'ing, remote editing, toggling hidden/system files etc can't be done (or maybe there is some complex way to do it) in Cyberduck. Thanks for the article, I have some others to try.

    • Have you tries cmnd . for preferences?
      There you will find that you can select an editor, I use smultron.
      Try cmnd i to change permissions or ctrl return to copy or change the name.

      Sorry if repeat

  6. Fetch is free for educational and charitable use.

  7. Good information and thanks for doing the research. If you use the Firefox browser on your Mac you can install the FireFTP addon for the browser (This also works in Windows).

    I use this exclusively now and would recommend it to any one because of it's ease of use. You can get it here: fireftp.mozdev.org/

My go to dual screen finder replacement

I've been looking for a dual pane finder for quite a while. I had paid the money for PathFinder, but found it to be so incredibly slow at moving files on network shares that I considered it unusable. Commander One has a lot of the functionality of PathFinder and it does everything pretty well. The only small negative I have is in how it highlights selected files and directories.

Developer Response,

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this positive review.
I would like to inform you that file selection functionality will be improved in the next major update of the app.

Great Mac finder, especially reliable, clear UI like Total Commander

Very pleased to see this. Please continue developing ;-) . Devs seem responsive: I asked for alternate line shading in the browser….and it soon appeared in an update! Plug in options to add features would be nice. TC (TotalCommander) has been in development for so long it has most features one could possibly dream of-but I never use Win any more. Wonder what the Commander One development plan looks like??
I wish this were available the first 6 or 8 years after I switched to Macs! I was in total TotalCommander withdrawal (except for use in a VM). So I learned to use finder & pathfinder and don’t use CommanderOnePro as my only finder. But CommanderOne is solid and great! E.g. the archive features (different compress engines builtin, plus ability to view archive as a directory-without dearchiving) are better than most other mac file managers. And the design with the option of old fashioned function keys for copy/move--looks clunky at first--but is 100% more reliable than drag/drop for critical file management tasks. Plus this’ll give me directory sizes for internal or external drives instantly—unlike other finders which often churn away or fail to update.

Developer Response,

Thank you for taking the time to review our software. The team here at Eltima is thrilled to hear such good feedback, and we’re more than happy to have such customers as you.

my review

Firstly i was a hardcore Total Commander user, can’t live without it. And after switch to MacOS i’ve searched for an alternative and i was very sad that all of the available file managers lack features that is must have for me, ugly or just acts weird. Than I found Commander Pro. This is the best alternative for TC.
Here are few possible enhancements imho:
- copy/move files: if one file is selected for copy/move the filename needs to be filled in the end of path input, so you can rename the file if you want
- file overwrite: for me this is the worst implementation. Why is the “keep both” the deafult? is anybody use this? imho the default is need to be cancel and need some shortcut or able to switch options with the cursors. Oh and the 'apply to all' needs to be an option not a checkbox. For this the TC is the golden standard.
- the built in viewer need to open any unknow format in text mode, not in hex
- draging files need some enhancements. When i like to drag file it always keeps select files, and when i like to select files it drag one of them
- the calculate dir size feature need some process indicator that it is in the process. Check TC for example.
Keep going!

Developer Response,

Thank you for your posted feedback. Please see our commentaries below:
1) There is an option copy and rename file at the same time. Just press F5, then put a slash in the path field and type the required file name after the slash. If you copy only one file and type a new name after the slash, the file will be renamed and will appear with the new name in the target pane.
2) In order to skip this 'keep both', please go to System Preferences-> Keyboard-> Shortcuts and activate 'All Controls' option.
3) Commander One’s built-in file viewer is available via F3 and is designed for viewing files in different formats. You can choose between the following viewing modes: https://www.eltima.com/wiki/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/c1-file-view.png
4) Our developers will improve the drag and drop option in further update of the app.
5) I've passed this feedback to our developers to consider adding such an option.
