FileZilla is a good FTP program if you like your user interface filled with a lot of buttons, windows, columns, options, etc. Does not support automatically saving modified files to the remote server. There are about 15-20 feature requests in trac for this, however a developer by the name of codesquid has unilaterally vetoed and rejected forks disallowing this feature from coming into the main branch. Uninstalled.
It works but some bugs are brought forward since the age of dinosaurs. One of them is the site manager whose window has random size and does not remember the last size. Now I've discovered that the random size is actually depending on the last host I open: 1) if it is an host in the first position in the list, the next time the window will be huge; 2) if you open an host that is in the tail of the list, the next time the site manager window will have a very small height. For a product like this, installed by default by hundreds of Linux distros, IT IS RIDICULOUS. It's not acceptable. And by the way I'm now tired to fill bugs report for nothing.
This is a great program, does file transfers and more quite well - except for one crucial thing. There is no way to abort an upload transfer. Once the popup dialogue appears, and there are hundreds of files it is replacing with the same name, there is no method to abort the transfer and start again. The popup dialog prevents using any of the other buttons in the program while it is taking the dominant focus over the program. There are many reasons to abort an upload, this is why it is so important for FTP transfers to have that option on uploads & downloads, to abort the transfer and shut the transfer down without closing the entire program. This means the abort option has to be in the popup that appears warning of the same file. When the developer provides the abort option, then it is worthy of 5 stars.
Filezilla is fast and secure for ftp transfers across server and computer. I liked it a lot
