Fetch, the best, though not that famous.

as a follow up, i did end up switching to this from cyberduck and don't regret it at all, fetch is amazing. it's absurdly quick, reliable, highly configurable and it manages to offer the user many features and options in a slick and well organized interface (not to mention it's extremely thorough documentation as well).

kudos to the devs!

it is very thoughtful of the fine folks at fetch softworks to extend a free license for fetch to university students and professors, as well as employees of tax exempt charity organizations. as a college student myself, i have found many professors from the "computer science" department prefer and in some cases require you to upload your completed assignments to a designated ftp server, meaning i find myself using an ftp application [in my case it is cyberduck at the moment] at home, much more than i normally would. but now, seeing as fetch softworks offers this free education & charity license, i figure i will give this app a 'go around' as they say. who knows, i might just switch from cyberduck.

Like so many of us, I've tried all the ftp options available for the mac. Somehow, the simplicity and elegance of this little program keeps me coming back.
