Editor's Review

FileZilla is a cross-platform graphical FTP, SFTP, and FTPS file management tool for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and more. With tons of intuitive tools, FileZilla helps you quickly move files between your computer and Web server. If you plan to use FileZilla regularly, you might like the advanced features like manual configuration and speed limit monitoring. While FTP may seem outdated, it’s actually a very reliable way to transfer large files or groups of files to your Web server. And, with FileZilla, you can deploy multiple simultaneous connections to speed up file transfers. Overall, FileZilla has everything you need to support your FTP needs including a documentation wiki and a forum.

Filezilla at a Glance

Filezilla is so easy to download and launch that you might not realize how powerful it is. Just enter a few basic server settings and you’re up and running with a single click. To upload and download files, simply drag and drop them between your Web server and computer. You monitor your actions in the site manager pane, which highlights the status of file uploads and downloads, or bypass the queue with manual transfer. You can also pause or cancel file transfers and even configure transfer speed limits to reduce file transfer errors, making the process of managing your Web site a breeze!

Product Details

Here is a detailed breakdown of Filezilla’s features:

  • FTP, FTPS, and SFTP support—Filezilla gives you a choice between several file transfer protocols and encryption methods, while supporting HTTP and the IPv6 Internet protocol.
  • Vital Info at a Glance—Filezilla lets you compare your files with server files in the same directory to see if their file name or size is out of sync via highlighted colors..
  • Built-in file management—A site manager lets you order transfer tasks via a server list and a transfer queue. It also supports resume, which means you can pause and continue transfers. Filename filters help locate specific files with the conditions you want. And you can edit server files on-the-fly, without downloading and re-uploading them back to the server.
  • Easy to navigate—A tabbed user interface allows you to multitask browse servers to transfer files between them simultaneously. Bookmarks provide easy access to frequently used files. You can also drag and drop files between your computer and Web server.
  • Advanced file settings—You can configure transfer speed limits to reduce file transfer errors and a network configuration wizard can assist you to configure any confusing network settings.
  • Reduces timeout errors—Filezilla checks your network connection and notifies you if it has been idle for too long by sending a keep-alive command.
  • Multi-language support—Filezilla is currently available in 47 languages worldwide.

Pros

Cons

FileZilla is a reliable, accessible program with many basic functions and advanced tools for expert users. If you are serious about FTP, FileZilla won’t disappoint. FileZilla stores your FTP credential in plain text instead of encrypting it. Therefore the onus is on you and your operating system to protect private data.

    While I like FileZilla, I am really dissatisfied with them putting additional junk software on my mac.

    Loved Filezilla in the past. Never used the 'Custom Installer' however, so I'm not aware of any adware. Their latest update (3.10) caused me grief. Apparently they now default to Ftp over TLS. My web hoster does not support that or not properly, so the connection crashed. Had to revert to 3.9. The admins on the FIlezilla forum (which you cannot register for) say get the server fixed, but that's not in my control!.

    I don't like the malware bundled with Filezilla, but I love the program for the odd file transfer. Does anyone have any recommendation for a clean file transfer application similar to filezilla? I know I can just use ftp/psftp but I prefer to have something with a graphical user interface.

    Because the installer downloads and installs malware, Chrome and Internet Explorer are blocking it. After successfully downloading it through Firefox, I inadvertently "agreed" to install some extra bundled software, and there is no "back" button to enable the user to go back and correct the error. This is the first time I have ever seen this kind of behaviour from a SourceForge-based installer, and I think it must stop. What I object to the most is the installer's devious, deceptive and irreversible way of obtaining the user's "agreement." I'm giving this 1 star, because of the installer's behaviour. If I were to rate the actual FileZilla program itself, I would give it 5 stars, as I have done in the past.
