I was looking for a new client to use, because of several problems I had with my old client. I have to tell everyone that this one saved my life…

Very simple to install, use and it works perfectly, resumes perfect, stays connected, reconnects and starts uploading from where it failed and so on…

I’m a web designer and developer, and I have to say, good job!

I had 1 hour to install & learn FileZilla and also create a step by step instruction document for the client about how to install & use it. I did it!!!!!!!!
Not because I am smart, but because it was very simple to follow.
Thanks a lot….
