It's not often I need to use FTP but when I do I use FileZilla and it's always a trouble-free experience. As a medium technical person, that says a lot for the software. Easy to set up and use, even if you're not deeply into FTP day-to-day.
Installed junkware - really !!
only a bonehead installs software without reading the latest information and the terms you're agreeing to when installing software. caveat emptor. having said that, the crapware present on many repackaged open-source projects is disturbing. DL The 7-zip dl from filehippo, e.g., is impossible to install without agreeing to some kind of crapware. This was not done by 7-zip developers, however.
two star for open office. minus 3 for the bad installer. PEOPLE you can have a clean install from Ninite website just google it!
FileZilla itself used to be a great tool, but the developers made a descision I cannot support. Their installer is by ask.com, producer of a useless, hardly uninstallable Toolbar that hacks into your browser and destroys your settings. Many people consider it as harmful like a virus, and indeed you can only remove it when you know what you do. So: BEWARE OF THE ADWARE IN THE INSTALLER! I cannot trust FileZilla anymore, and I will not update until they refrain from adding garbage to their installer.
Nice software but security is very poor. *Negative - Simple TXT Saved Passwords (unSecure Method).
