What is Muon SSH/SFTP client (formerly Snowflake)?
Easy and fun way to work with SSH.
Muon is a java-based graphical SSH client. It has a file browser, terminal emulator, resource/process manager, disk space analyzer, text editor, log viewer and lots of other helpful tools, which makes it easy to work with remote servers. It runs on Linux and Windows. Muon has been tested with Ubuntu server, CentOS, RHEL, OpenSUSE, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD and HP-UX.
The app is designed to provide a simple graphical interface which allow common activities like moving files on server, renaming, cut, copy, paste, archiving, executing scripts, checking free space, calculating directory size, changing permissions, etc, in simple and efficient way. Though file browsing is based on SFTP, the app uses shell commands whenever posssible to perform operations efficiently. For example deleting a directory having huge number of files and sub directories can take a while using SFTP, but with simple rm command it's much faster. Also the app will prompt to user and can run sudo if priviledged operation needs to be performed. No switching to terminal is needed to invoke sudo. Moving files between servers is also supported with simple drag and drop.

I like this simple but beatiful interface. I just regret that the config file can't be moved or renamed from the home root directory.
It stores passwords in plain text files without encryption.
large GUI interface, both SSH and SFTP work like tabbed browsing, open your files with your own internal editor....much better than WinSCP.
