    It has a nice, user-friendly interface and is "more than only FTP" because of all the cloud connections you can add. In other words, the ideal tool for a remote workplace.

    Besides standard FTP access, it offers access to cloud storage providers. Another big plus is the better looking User Interface.

    Cyberduck is a good FTP/SFTP client for macOS and Windows. It's been my go-to FTP software for years, and it has a much more modern and clean interface compared to FileZilla. The only drawback is that it's not available for Linux.

    Definitely the best alternative to FileZilla with Cyberduck. It has a very clean and modern interface with lots of useful features, but it costs a few bucks. So, if you want something free, go with Cyberduck or FileZilla, but if you're ready to spend some $ in a good software, then buy Transmit.

    FileZilla Secure is ABSOLUTELY the best alternative to FileZilla. FileZilla stores passwords in plain text which is an unforgiveable security flaw. FileZilla Secure fixes this. Unfortunately, FileZilla Secure is available for Windows only at the moment. Linux and Mac versions are on the way, we are told. Let's hope.
