OneButton FTP And Macfusion Reviews

OneButton FTP Review

OneButton FTP is a free FTP client software for Mac OS X, developed by Aaron Jacobs with help from community. The program has simple and straightforward graphical interface. OneButton has emphasis on simplicity, drag and drop usability, and file queuing. You can use it to transfer files to and from remote servers, such as the ones hosting your website, simply by dragging files to and from your computer.

You will need a Mac running OS X 10.4 or later. The program contains localizations for English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, and Swedish. It supports both unencrypted FTP and FTP over SSL transfers.

Unfortunately, the author of OneButton FTP has begun a full-time job and no longer has time to actively maintain it. The application can still be downloaded and should work fine, but it isn’t supported at this time.
