I'm also a long time user, so my review is more global: I've always preferred Transmit's interface and feel over the other FTP clients, but I've always also had issues while syncing "huge" folders (if you can consider 100Mb huge, nowadays...) I still haven't found another app that does it with no alert of any kind or not having connection issues, so I suspect that FTP on its own is already an issue, but I can't believe there's no cure for such things in 2019... :-/

(From long-term paying user) Transmit is pretty, like all Panic products. But on recent MacOS (including latest Catalina, with latest Transmit) you get scattered zero-byte transfers, without warning or message of any kind. Not good. You're left digging through multiple folders to find where those files are, which is not what trustworthy FTP should be about. Also (maybe related) first single-file transfer after a connection can take up to 10-15 seconds, even for a tiny file. But yes, the software is pretty...

When I see "FTP", I think of Transmit.

Having a lot of ftp connection issues with the last few versions (post 5). Have used this app since its birth so don't want to judge and re-rate just yet.. Am a Coda user as well and having much better luck using it as an ftp uploader.. what's going on Panic?
If I did not use Coda.. and if Yummy did no sport such a crappy antiquated UI.. and if ForkLift imported Transmit bookmarks (I have looooads).. I'd have moved away already.. (on top of that support is not very good, in my perception at least).

I don't really like this much. I use Transmit to connect to a local linux box in our office via sftp. If I select a remote file (e.g. a tiny text file) from the Transmit window and edit and then save it in a Mac text editor, it can take up to 30 seconds before I get the notification from transmit that the file updated at the linux box. It's definitely not a bandwidth issue on our LAN.

Having moved over from my beloved FETCH 5.77 (used since the 1990s) as Jim Matthews is still creating the 64-bit version for the modern era, there's lots to like about Transmit, except it has already crashed on me 3 times in the past hour after Purchasing a couple of copies for Work.

Still lots of v5.5 bugs for them to follow-up on within OSX 10.14.5 Mojave. I've sent Crash Reports to Panic Dev.

Have used Transmit for many tears. Installed v5.5.0 after which it has forgotten my Amazon S3 login details and refuses to connect when I supply them.

With a different FTP program, I was having problems uploading my files. I got disconnected all the time. I then switched to Transmit, and voilà: no more disconnections! Wonderful program!

Since updating to 5.2.2, connections no longer resume after restarting the application. HUGE fail. BTW, darkening the active tab is moronic and entirely unintuitive. Put it back to the way it used to be: active tab light; inactive tabs dark!
