This has been my go-to FTP for years. I've tried most of the others, and while some are more pretty and have a more Mac-like app appearance, this does what I want and how I want more than any of the others.

It makes no sense to use this after using cyberduck. FileZilla has a poor interface and the file transfer cant be scheduled. But it is comparatively faster than cyberduck.

Cyberduck looks nicer and is very capable, but it required Java when I tried it last, and I won't install Java on my Macs. So, I use FileZilla.

Contrary to ur beliefs, java is actually safe! You might wanna look up on that and do proper research before commenting.

Cyberduck has serious issues handling certain types of file names containing unrecognized characters, whereas FileZilla typically does not. Further, FileZilla can manage PuTTY keys better and without throwing an error with some server configurations like Cyberduck does. However, for straight ahead basic FTP use Cyberduck is fine. It certainly has a better interface.

This seems to be the only free and reliable FTP app.

Interface could use work.

I used to use CyberDuck, which has a much nicer, more Mac-like interface, but I finally got fed up with waiting the unreasonably long time it takes to launch the application. Sure FileZilla is butt-ugly, but it's a CLEAN kind of butt-ugly. And it launches immediately. It's perhaps not the most intuitively designed application, but it didn't take long to figure out how to make it work. It's fast, it's free, and it works. FileZilla is my go-to FTP app now.

The ONLY reason I use it is for the support for PuTTY keys - CyberDuck is still gives an error when trying to connect to our SFTP site, though I still use it for FTP.

I haven't used this in awhile. But from the last time I used it, what worried me was that passwords were stored in plaintext inside its configuration directory. Is this still the case?

UI-wise, I don't mind the non-Apple compliance, but the password thing drove me away.

Dualie had trouble on 22 Nov 2013
Having issues with foreign characters in file names causing the file to not show up at all in the file list.
Cyberduck can see the file at least, but can't do anything with it (rename, move, get, etc.).
When encountering these types of files I am forced to use either Terminal or Transmit c.2003 to change the file name.
