Easy* FTP Program?

in Mac Software edited January 2014
* Free.

Hey whats a good shareware FTP app for OSX? I'm not looking for anything complicated, I don't even want to be a sevrer- I just wanna get some files from a freinds FTP. Seriously all I need is something that asks for my name, pass, port number, and then will let me queue up lots and lots of files.

I know it sounds easy enough- but I've actually tried lots of things allready, and they're often so bloated and complicated that it never pulls through.

Anyone? Thanks.

    fetch is what you are looking for..

    it is not free unless you can prove that you are enrolled in a university....

    Look on versiontracker for RBrowser Lite. It's free, easy to use, and does anything you want to do. There's also a pay option if you want more features, although the Lite version is just fine for me.

    LiFTP isn't bad, the person developing it kinda stopped.. so I don't know how many bugs are still in it. It works fairly well in my limited use of it.

    If you want secure ftp, then do a search for fugu, it's a client by some college computer department.

    If you want a FTP-client with a GUI go for Transmit or Fetch. Otherwise NcFTP is great (cli-client).

    Fetch is the one I use. I haven't tried anything else on the mac in quite a while.

    Fetch is quite nice (OS9 nostalgia), but it's a CPU hog in OSX.

    I use Fetch almost exclusively, largely because the drag'n'drop is so well-resolved.
