A fast FTP and SFTP client for Windows with a lot of features

editor's review





FileZilla evolved from what was originally a class project into a full-featured, open-source FTP application. The global project consists of the Filezilla client and Filezilla Server, both of which can be used individually for website management and transfer.

The FileZilla client features support for various protocols, such as FTP, FTPS (FTP over SSL/TLS) and SFTP (SSH FTP) and is able to handle the IPv6 technology. It achieves outstanding transfer speeds and can be used for remote file editing. With this program you can save usernames, passwords, connection types, and other details necessary for connecting to a website, thanks to the built-in Site Manager.

FileZilla adopts a tabbed style for the user interface, which makes it easy to navigate through files and folders. Most of the functions are bundled in a few menus, but a toolbar of buttons for essential features is also available.

With FileZilla, you can batch download and upload files from and to multiple servers, modify access rights, change firewall settings, cache directories to increase FTP site browsing speed, quickly connect to the server, set to automatically adjust transfer speeds, to name the most important ones.

With drag and drop support, speed limits, process queue and multiple transfer modes, FileZilla also sports a huge settings menu with configuration options that concern every single feature of the app, such as transfers, proxy, interface, file editing or language. All these settings can be exported and imported back at a later time.

To conclude, FileZilla is one of the most appreciated FTP clients on the market and for good reason, too. It’s fast, intuitive and makes the perfect companion for website administrators. A portable version is available via this link.
