Make this page better by adding screenshots to PuTTY.
PuTTY doesn't have tabs. This is super annoying. (Asbru, PAC Manager, SecureCRT, Zoc do) It can't use standard OpenSSH keys. You must convert them to its own PPK key format. All other SSH clients use...See why people do not like PuTTY 😡 Post your review

It can't use standard OpenSSH keys. You must convert them to its own PPK key format. All other SSH clients use standard keys.
To just connect to a host, the information is spread across THREE option pages:
This is just stupid UX. Sorry. In Asbru, ZOC or PAC Manager, you have all the login information on one page.
It's very old and you have to convert your SSH keys from the standard format into "PuTTY keys" for them to work.
This is a bit strange!. This application has 113 likes and its alternatives have only 5 likes?. SSH has been around since ages and many people use it in their everyday development life .... and still there are no better alternatives? ( of course a free one!).
This help me in so many ways to list.
i use it for configuring cisco swiches.
Have been using putty for years. Though a bit old, it works for me!
I love putty. If it weren't for putty, I'd probably be missing several limbs and/or eyeballs right now.
i miss putty so much on my mac I use crossover to run it just like a normal application. Apple really needs to redo the terminal app, it sucks!
I don´t like it, yet. I would like to test it
Really good client.
Very stable with most of servers.
