    FTP Clients
    Im looking for good FTP client for mac.

    Im currently using cyber duck, but im not to keen on the interface. I dont like the way that it shows the contents of a server in alphabetical order and the folders are not grouped together. I also dont like the way that the client only shows you whats on the server and there is no other half to the application that shows you what is on your own system.

    I use FileZilla without any problems. It's free, so you might as well give it a shot to see if it meets your needs.

    Sadly, Filezilla is prettier on the PC!

    If you can't or don't want to afford Transmit, you can use Wget in the command line to synchronize. It's hella fast.

    Interesting to read on the Apple Developer connection site that the developers of Transmit say that the FTP code within Coda is better than Transmit and that future versions of Transmit will use the Coda code.

    I am using Cyberduck as my ftp and ssh client. It's free, simple to use and works realy great.

    I just finalized a delta-synchronization script for wget and made it an automator workflow. Now backing up a remote site is as easy as a click in the menu bar. Time Machine handles the versioning. Mac is wonderful.
