Version 5.5.2

Works for me every time. No fuss no hiccups on both up- and downloads.
Version 5.7.6
The best FTP client for me. It hasn't changed much over the years, and that's just fine because it doesn't need changing. It's functional and well-designed, has a nice UI, and still has the little running dog! I've grown attached to that little dog. If that little dog goes, I'll consider Transmit. Until then, it's Fetch for me.

Don't remember if I have reviewed it before - one of the oldest and most trustworthy of apps for the Mac. I always preferred Fetch over the competition due to the simplicity: just drop the files in the relevant directory and no worry about synchronizing local and offsite directories ... !

I had written in my review from 2010 that their pricing is just so fair and moderate. Now we are here with OS10.10. and they still don’t ask for an upgrade price, see their news: “Fetch 5.7.4 is a free update if you purchased your Fetch license after January 28, 2009; otherwise an upgrade is $10, and a new license is $29. ” Way back then we had OS10.5.! @Fetch Softworks, thank you for your support!

Version 5.7.4

Just works. Which is tepid praise for most things, but you never ever want to question your FTP software's ability to get stuff done. I used Fetch in the 1990's when it was the only choice. It was solid. Then I strayed to flashier, more modern apps. I tried them all, and every one of them disappointed me or thwarted me in some respect. I came back to Fletch, and it's great relief to have a grown-up tool to handle FTP tasks (which are always important tasks). This one's grey and aging, and still feels like a 1995-era app. For example, when editing a file name, it's not smart enough to only select the name portion; it selects (and forces you to retype) the extension as well. And if you upload a file, it doesn't warn you if you're uploading over a pre-existing file of the same name. Hey, it assumes you know what you're doing. But you can also assume Fetch knows what it's doing.

Its been well over a decade that my two stalwarts have been Fetch and Interarchy, with a 90%-10% split. Yes, I try the others, but it‘s the little things, the polish.

I forgot all about Interarchy! I used to use both of them as well.

I've been using Fetch on and off for over a decade, and it's still my favorite FTP client.

I still love it after all these years. Latest 5.71 works great on Leopard I thought though that it was Leopard-only nowadays, yet a fix says "fixed a Crash when launched in MacOSX 10.4?

The ability to directly mirror remote servers is huge and may be unique to Mac-based ftp clients. Although others have more features, Fetch is reliable and easy to use.
