      FileZilla vs Cyberduck opinions
      This alternative is disputed. FileZilla is still a legitimate alternative to Cyberduck, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      FileZilla is only an FTP client, Cyberduck can access cloud storage like S3 too.

      FileZilla doesn't support S3, Onerive, etc

      antoniobeana Filezilla is more stable than Cyberduck.
      Positive comment over 5 years ago

      Only Filezilla PRO supports GoogleDrive, Dropbox, OneDrive, etc. not open-source Filezilla. Filezilla Pro is commercial not free app.

      Dolphin File Manager vs Cyberduck opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      jano Dolphin supports FTP, SFTP, SMB and WebDAV as well and gives you all the usability comfort of a normal file manager (tabs, split view, opening documents etc.). Although it doesn't support Amazon S3 and needs a plugin for Dropbox, it's covers more of Cyberduck's use cases than the other alternatives.

      Insync syncs GD folders to your disk, while CYberduck mounts them "on the fly"
