Very strong recommendation
FTP using RBrowser in free mode = FTP, without synchronization and
some other features
Very powerful Mac interface
Drag and drop
Easy user interface for changing permissions.
One feature I like is double clicking a file in the FTP client that
opens locally and then saves changes back to the FPT location.
Easy user interface for assigning the default app to open the file on
Examples a text file in TextEdit, PDFs in Preview, spreadsheets
mp3 in iTunes, mov in QuickTime
html in your favorite editor (mine is BBEdit)
While we are on the subject, there is a method for drag and drop on
Mac OSX that most don't know about.
Let's say you wanted to upload 3 jpgs to the web server.
In the Finder hilight the files, click and begin dragging... now while
holding down the mouse, use command-tab to change the application to
your FTP app, continue dragging the correct folder, then release.
This works for any drag-drop operation between programs that are
running on the Mac.
