A good freeware FTP client?

I just tried RBrowserLite, but I'm not that keen on it.

A decent bluetooth mouse?

I seem to remember Macmice.com will be releasing one
soon, does anyone know?

Cheers,
Kudos

The best mac ftp client: Transmit

I'd recommend Transmit too, but there are other choices, like the venerable Fetch.

I've taken the liberty of doing a search for "ftp client" at MacUpdate and Versiontracker to come up with a (rather long) list at each site.

Just click on the following links, if you want to take a squizz: MacUpdate (http://www.macupdate.com/search.php?keywords=ftp+client&os=&button.x=0&button.y=0) or VersionTracker (http://www.versiontracker.com/php/search.php?mode=basic&action=search&str=ftp+client&plt%5B%5D=macosx&x=0&y=0).

It is rather a lot to take in, though, and Transmit is good ... :)

I've always used RBrowserLite, it's crap but serves my occasional need.

However, I'll soon be doing a lot more FTPing. Had a look at that Transmit, sounds impressive but the screenshots worry me... they're 10.0/10.1 era (look at the title bars)... has Transmit been further developed/updated since then?

Yeah - v2 only came out recently.
While you're on panic.com check out their other apps. They have quite a nice selection of high quality stuff.

I guess that screen shot was taken under 10.2.
Here is a screen shot of the current version under 10.3

Thanks again for the pointer.

Transmit is a much better, well more like what I'm used to
anyway!
