Overall Satisfaction with FileZilla

I use FileZilla for most of my FTP activities like uploading/downloading files. It is very lightweight and easy to use. On top of everything, it's free. One of the best open source software in any category. As an integration consultant, I often come to projects where files present on FTP need to be integrated. This requires a lot of uploading/downloading of files for testing purposes. FileZilla comes in handy in these scenarios. Its Pro version is also not very costly. What I most like is that I can give this to any new team member and they can start working on it right away without the need for training.
  • Very lightweight and easy to use. Very simple interface. Literally, no training required for the user of any role.
  • Quick connect feature remembers your credentials and let you connect to previously connected sites in one click.
  • Most importantly, it's free! Pro version is not that costly either.
  • We can limit the network speed too. It often comes in handy when we need to save some bandwidth for other processes.
  • Support for the product is one area for improvement but having a free/cost effective (pro version), you can't complain much.
  • Some would say its interface is not very pretty, but it's easy to use which matters most.
  • The free version has most of the basic but key features so there is no impact on cost. A must-have tool on your system.
FileZilla is useful for all type of FTP activities like uploading/downloading files, etc. It has a very simple and self-explanatory interface so it is well suited for newbies. You can give it to any team member and they can start playing with your FTP server.
