Sure, Filezilla got hit with the ugly stick, but in my opinion it is more powerful than either of the Mac's best looking FTP clients (Transmit and Forklift).

Filezilla has features that are lacking in one or both of those competing applications:

- Recursively chmod ONLY files OR folders
- Delete individual queued files
- Re-order queued files
- View the transfer queue and connection log in a single interface, rather than having to pull up a separate window
- Filter out e.g. .svn and .git directories

But it isn't perfect:
- Dragging files from Filezilla to the Finder isn't possible
- I think a control+click is required to delete a file. The standard key-combo command+delete doesn't work, nor does the delete key alone.

In other words, FileZilla doesn't integrate very well with the Mac OS. Since it's a port from Windows that isn't surprising, but it would ne good if Mozilla put some effort into making Filezilla play better with OSX.
