Absolute stone ages and it comes packed with Yahoo CRAP that takes over your browser default pages and search engines. Go Transmit or go home.

Probably the worst interface of any Mac app, it is Linux/Windows at it's worst. It is cumbersome and ugly. If you want a free ftp app for MacOS, then go for Cyberduck.

WARNING – Filezilla is often bundled with malware that is difficult to detect. Assume that malware is present in any download, from every source.

Regardless of Filkezilla merits, this bundling is unacceptable.

Windows, OS X and Linux versions of FileZilla can be downloaded WITHOUT BUNDLED / SIDE INSTALLERS OR MALWARE at FOSSHUB. As a a matter of principle, FOSSHUB will not host any apps with bundled installers.

The direct FileZilla download can be found here:
https://filezilla-project.org/download.php?show_all=1
That download contains the FTP client and not the installer.
The same file can be found at Fosshub (see comment from Mcr).

BE VERY CAREFUL if you download from https://filezilla-project.org. There are TWO, quote "client", packages available for download at that site. One is clean, the other is bundled. If you follow the link provided by @Beamy, you want the compressed file that looks like this "FileZilla_x.yy.z_macosx-x86.app.tar.bz2" . On the same site, if you go to Home page and press the red button that says "Download FileZilla Client", it ends up with a link to a DMG file, that looks like this "FileZilla_3.44.1_macosx-x86_sponsored-setup.dmg".

The DMG file comes with bundled software, hence the term "sponsored-setup". So, rule of thumb, always get the compressed TAR/BZ2 file, never the DMG file. Or use the link I provided to FOSSHUB, which hosts ONLY the TAR/BZ2 file, never the DMG file.

For Windows versions, the files on https://filezilla-project.org all appear to have bundled software; and are packaged as EXE's. Hence, better choice is still to use FOSSHUB, where the Windows clients are portable versions packaged as ZIP files, NO EXE executables that can contain hidden installers.

Very good, easy to use and powerful app, no question about it. Filezilla works well on all platforms and is free. So thanks to the developer. I give the full rating because I like it very much, its free and I have no complaints, If you go to the developer website "Filezilla" the first download button you encounter will download FileZilla_3.30.0_macosx-x86_setup_bundled.dmg. This may contain some bundled adware. To be fair: it clearly says right below the button that "This installer may include bundled offers.". So: it does not secretly install anything without your prior knowledge of the fact. So...the second link "Show additional download options" will open a new page showing the download link for FileZilla_3.30.0_macosx-x86.app.tar.bz2 Get this one. Once extracted you will have the Filezilla.app only.
