LeapFTP is a powerful FTP client that promises to make file uploading to FTP servers a breeze.
And in order to serve its purpose, the application offers a well-organized interface with intuitive options, although it's pretty obvious that rookies may have a hard time figuring out how to use it.
In fact, it's not the interface that makes it less appropriate for beginners, but the great amount of features that includes recursive transfers, remote file editing and CHMOD, anti-idle and directory list caching.
With drag and drop obviously supported, it's very easy to upload a file on the go, as LeapFTP also offers resuming tools for each download or upload. A site database manager is also available to make sure you connect to a server in a few seconds, while a dedicated tool automatically redials the connection in case of any errors.
LeapFTP offers SOCKS proxy support, but also custom menu menu commands and anti-idling, just to make sure the server doesn't disconnect you after a short period of inactivity.
It's also recommended to have a look in the settings menu as well because this is the only way to configure proxy and transfers, priorities and interface. Plus, it hides options concerning security certificates, sounds, connection and history.
LeapFTP indeed works a like charm regardless of the operating system installed on your computer, and can even be configured to start together with Windows and place an icon in the System Tray.
The impact on system performance is minimal, even during transfers at higher speed.
Overall, LeapFTP is clearly one of the top FTP clients on the market, combining a remarkable lineup of features with a clean look and a comprehensive help file.
