All of the usual FTP options are there when it comes to FTP. If one has to simply upload files to a server/ website, I'm struggling to see why one should pay anything in the region of 50 bucks when this application will do the same job just fine. For me, and I suspect, many others, this is what Mac software is all about, products that just work, its not all about the way an app looks. The main usefulness, for me anyway, is the way this app works with Amazon S3. If you are considering an S3 account for *storage*, then Cyberduck is a no brainer - browse your s3 space a la Finder, open a new folder and size folders, all in your S3 disk space; speedy faultless transfer across to said S3 disk space - this is all you will need. And its free. I note too that that versioning (and therefore, the possibility of this app being used as a backup tool) is coming soon in a forthcoming update. What a great Mac application this is.

Version 3.5.1

Use it for a long, long time; best free ftp app of the mac, with no doubt. Since its Windows version, I also use it on PC and choose it for teaching on both mac and PC better than FileZilla, because of its simplicity and neat interface and simple fonctionnality. Trustfull app, as several web hosters (in France) give a configuration file for it to set up your ftp account.
Was a little slow in the past (though functional), but not now: never have a problem to put sites online with it… My best ftp app, and for free: I give regular contributions directly to the dev, but don't want 30% of it in the Apple pocket (which I contribute in many others occasions!).

I appreciate the developers allows the usage of the app for free but I, personally, run away from it like the plague it is: slow, bloated and heavy on system resources and storage consumption, weights about ~250mb when installed -- NUTS!!!

If you'd ever think about buying this app, do yourself a favor and check ForkLift and Commander One PRO first - yw =)

I use this one whenever I need to swap files on my Raspberry Pi. Easy to connect and navigate/move files. Will be donating next time I use it!

This is update v6.4.6 and NOT v6.4.4 as shown in 'what's new'.
Version 6.4.6

5 stars without any doubt. I use English version from the very beginning and have never faced any problems with this application. And the main advantage of this FTP browser is that it is FREE.

I just upgraded to version 6.2.0 on Mac Os Sierra v. 10.12.6. And the program won't close. A dialogue box popup to request donation and it won't respond to any click. I can't close it. Help.

Removing / not fixing the not faulty queue makes Cyberduck much more of a 'dumb' tool that continuously needs your attention as it cannot remember future tasks.

This a very nice app, which I have used it since many years. Unfortunately, version 6.1.0 has the same bug as 6.0.0 - it creates a "fake" icon in the dock (contrary to the dock preferences: "minimise windows into application icon") and crashes after quit. This bug was corrected in 6.0.4, but reappeared in 6.1.0.

Version 6.1.0 runs but won't let me open a new connection on El Capitano. Nothing happens, the app just sits there. Can't report a bug cuz that requires me to open yet another account on what looks like a dev page. Previous version 6.0.4 worked without a hitch.

I already figured it out. In the Prefs my default connection protocol changed to Microsoft Azure. Setting it back to Backblaze B2 solved the problem and the open connection window pops up again. Sorry guys.
