I would like to say thank you to Robert for writing a fantastic product. Not only does the package do what it says, Robert answered every single one of my emails within a few hours.

I'm with Luther below: Never had a problem with RBrowser Lite, but I cannot connect to my usual FTP site with the newer versions -- or, rather, it connects, but the file list is blank. The log on the server says it's connected, but nothing shows up in the client window. RBrowser's troubleshooting gives two possible solutions; one doesn't fix it, and the other is referring to a preference setting that no longer exists in the newer versions. And I can't find an e-mail address on the RBrowser site to point out the problem. Ugh.

Loved RBrowser Lite, but will have to go looking for another plain ol' FTP client.

I just want to leave a big "thank you" for this cool, awesome piece of
software. I'm using it in free mode with 10.39 for my private homepage and tried a
copy of Netfinder with OS 9.22 before, but rbrowser lite is even better.

Thank you so much!

I've been using RBrowserLite for years with no problems. Great little FTP utility. I just purchased a new MacBook to replace a Mac Mini G4 so thought I download the newer version of RBrowser that is Intel native. Deleted old app/prefs/application support of the Lite Version, but couldn't get v. 4.3.5 of RBrowser to work. I have reinstalled RB Lite on my Mini from my backup, and all is working well just like it used to. Guess I'll just use the lite version under Rosetta emulation for now.

Luther and Chris - you should check to see if there is some other issue that is causing the problem. I use the program on an older MacBook G4, a MacPro Dual Core and a current iMac - all running on the latest version of OS X - and have no problems of any kind.

Like many recent applications that 'claim' to be Universal Binaries that work on MacIntel machines, this is another one that just doesn't live up to its claim. Runs just fine on my old G4, but crashes like Gangbusters on this new iMac.

This seems like a decent ftp client.

Easy to use and worked first time, no problems so far.

Indeed; thanks. Either that's new since yesterday (when I last checked the RBLite page) or I missed it.

I've been using this app for at least four years and in that time it has never caused me any serious problems whatsoever. This app is solid. If you have issues with it you should contact the developer. He *WILL* fix them, I know this to be true.

I paid for this shortly after OSX 10.0 came out, and it was essential then (it was the only graphical ftp client that worked) but I've barely used it in the past few years. It just hasn't developed the way other clients have. The UI still feels like a 10.0 app, that is, it feels half finished. This is the only ftp client I can still crash on a regular basis (Cyberduck, Fugu and Transmit being the others I use.) Try any of those three before buying this one.

i have to say that Cyberduck and Transmit were both alot more unstable on my machine than Rbrowser.

Cyberduck is my client of choice even though I've paid for Rbrowser.... but Rbrowser is much more stable

Truly, RBrowser is rock solid stable. I've used it since who knows when and it has always performed very well.
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.

  • Automatic detection protocol capabilities on the remote host - no need to know whether to use FTP, SFTP or SSH, just leave it on "Auto" and let RBrowser figure out the best protocol to use.
  • Definitely faster in all protocols and operations.
  • Protocol independent transfers - remote-to-remote transfers between any hosts.
  • Intelligent combining of ssh/sftp for optimal performance to get the best of the secure world - no longer have to decide which protocol is better for file operations or transfers. RBrowser's intelligent sftp/ssh protocol layer picks the optimal tool for the job for you automagically.

Working on documents, managing files over the network can be fairly painful, especially for those who are not experts in the cryptic UNIX shell commands. If you work on remote systems or have to move files back and forth often, RBrowser can make your life a lot easier. RBrowser provides an easy way to manage and edit your HTML pages on the directly on the remote WEB host. RBrowser provides connectivity with FTP and SFTP. Maintain your Web pages and sync the changes with a single click! Backup your important files using the Folder Sync Engine in RBrowser!
