DeFacto FTP client for Mac OS

I've been using Fetch for more than 20 years. It is THE ftp client for Mac OS. A MUST HAVE. It's very simple to use, yet capable of some of the more essoteric FTP settings. It has been a shareware staple and always one of the first apps I install on any new Mac all the way back to the B&W 512K Classic, just glad I don't have to worry about all the MacBinary and Modem garbage from the old days.
Today Kermit and Xmodem options are replaced with SFTP and Kerberos options. AppleSingle, TYPE I, server-2-server, and loads of other features are supported. Oh yeah and Rover is in color now.

Disregard the low ratings, clearly those were folks who were challenged by technology.

Great FTP app

I have been using this app for more than a year, even the demo one.
Very easy, simple to use.
Really enjoyed it!

Solid FTP app

This has been my FTP app of choice for some time. It's very basic, but gets the job done. I'd like to see retina support, however -- this app has become an eyesore on my new rMBP.
