I am strongly disappointed to see FileZilla turns black like this - 5 viruses detected!

Malware inside installers

about FileZilla · ·

Latest versions contains malware.

It is discussed more than a year already. It seems the decision of authors of the projects.

You may download software without malware but you should be quite accurate.

More details available in Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FileZilla#Bundled AdwareIssues

As for me this app should be marked as suspicious. Despite it can be cleanly installed, but a lot of malware can be installed as well if you follow recommended links on the homesite download page.

Only Popular Because its Free

about FileZilla and FlashFXP, CuteFTP · · 2 Helpful

The software is good in terms of Free software, but you can't compete with free. If you want basic functionality then FileZilla might be for you. If you wanted some more advanced features like File Synchronization or Segmented Downloads look no further then the FileZilla forums where Devs regularly say jawdropping stupid things whenever people suggest features that their competition has already implemented.

The only reason why FileZilla has so many votes is because it's Free. It has very little competition in that space and again... advanced features I would not count on it. Great alternatives like FlashFXP and CuteFTP always existed. But people are always scared away as soon as they see a price tag.

No longer my FTP client of choice on Windows

Unfortunately, the default download seems to be the SourceForge Installer which pushes browser add-ons and other software that the user didn't come to get. I can not longer recommend FileZilla because of this.
