CuteFTP Comments

Plus for Segmented Downloads

Positive Comment by blaxus
about CuteFTP Aug 2014

The only client I could find with Segmented Downloads. And it works great. I'm not saying I use this as my FTP client for everything. Because I never liked their bloated UI. But they have improved a lot over time.

When I need fast Downloading with FTP... CuteFTP is the way to go.
