    Filezilla is simply not an alternative to Mountain Duck. At all.

    Mountain Duck mounts cloud storage as a drive, FileZilla doesn't do that.

    pros, cons and recent comments

    While Mountain Duck can mount cloud storage as a volume, I want full integration with Finder as a Folder. Plus, the sync option between computers is amazing. I can load up a new computer and allow it to access the same files seamlessly. Worth the $.
