Still the best version of Filezilla - they've mostly ruined it with the v3 series. This is the last version which contains Mode Z compression, and the last version which automatically monitors local source directory for changes and refreshes it in realtime. Plus it loads faster than FZ3. And for those reasons, FZ3 -- I'm out.

Filezilla is stable and still the best ftp client out there. Definitely worth spending 1 minute to write a positive review.

Free is too expensive for this thing.

I often do huge uploads to my web host. For whatever reason, whenever I do, I get socket errors from the host after many hours of uploading. Maybe the host sucks, I don't know and it doesn't matter.

When FileZilla is being used for the upload, and the socket error occurs, the piece of garbage automatically restarts the upload, even though I have the upload restart settings configured to RESUME, not restart. I don't care if I can totally disable retries, because I don't want to do that. I just want the client not to do something moronic, like rewrite a multi-GB file that is in the middle of being uploaded.

When FTP Voyager is being used, and the socket error occurs, it does not restart the upload. This isn't the best behavior, but it sure beats what FileZilla does.

Why don't the authors of FTP clients make it so they simply resume automatically? Why? Is this not brain-dead obvious behavior to at least have as an option?

The best FTP client: free, fast, simple, lot's of proxy support,... Version 3 is completely useless except it started to be released also for Linux.

Still the best FTP client. The final release of Filezilla 3 is a huge let down, but this is still amazing.

pros: It's free

cons: too simple, outdated, interface is from the year 2000, no need to use "external" FTP aplication for simple things...

conclusion:

On Windows platform, Total Commander 7 does EVERYTHING this does and more, in a more pleasant and convenient way with a much much much better interface. Abilities like synchronize directories etc just make it my FTP choice for simple things. But it is a commercial application...

On linux...FileZilla 3 looks promising, but not now.

For hardcore FTP players, we have just another leauge of another FTP applications.

Don't be so stupid, zridling. Jerry4dos has a good point. Windows is more than just 2000, XP, and 2003.

Should any developer support an OS that is almost 12 years old? I can't take seriously the complaint of someone who hasn't updated their OS in at least the last five years. I'm glad it doesn't run on Win95 — less bloat for the rest of us.

It seems that the last version of Filezilla that will work with Win95 is v2_2_19a, which is, fortunately, still availble from the developer's web site. As I write this, this FFBN entry still lists FZ as "OS Support: Windows (All)". Perhaps this listing needs to be updated.

Again, great stuff. People who put their heart into software, deserve praise! (And money!)

tipsyboy:

There is no "Settings" menu. There is a "Settings" menu item under the "Edit" menu however. Now that we have the correct menu name figured out, I will reiterate the point I made long ago, which you tried to correct but did not: You cannot set FileZilla to have a horizontal layout. I do not like the vertical layout. This is my point, which stands to this day.

This is a good client, and 3 is a "good" rating.
