    Best FREE Simple FTP for Mac?
    Looking for a free, simple and easy ftp client for my iMac.

    I dont need / want loads of fancy features. Just to be able to transfer a few files to a couple of servers now and then.

    On the PC I used cuteFTP V2 which while really old, was really simple.

    Suggestions please. Not being tight by wanting free. Just realistic as it will only be used for simple transfers on a few rare occasions... I'm NOT going to be using it to upload huge files or manage multiple convoluted websites on a daily basis.

    Just log in, drag, drop, log off... Simplesssss

    This isn't an FTP, but a small program called DropBox. Check it out, even has an App for the iPhone. May be something you like :-)

    +1 for CyberDuck. It does the job nicely and you can't argue with the price.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I use cyberduck for SFTP, but if you just want even more simple and easy peasy.. and you use Firefox... try fireftp. Works a charm!
