Captain FTP might sound like some kind of swashbuckling, seafaring FTP client but ignore the name - it's actually a really good client.

Captain FTP is an intelligent client because it uses what the developer's call "Sync Browsing". This means that if the local and remote directory structure match, users can browse folders locally and the remote folder will automatically follow the local folder. Captain FTP supports all major protocols such as SSL and SFTP and it even has presets for those that upload to Amazon S3 and WebDav uploads.

The interface of Captain FTP couldn't be simpler. It features simple navigation with Quick Connect, supports drag and drop, supports virtual folders, Growl alerts and built-in internal viewers for movies, pictures, sound and PDFs. Captain FTP also supports scheduled transfers, accelerated transfers, resuming, auto-reconnect, synchronization, Applescripts and much more than it should do for a such a simple client.

The only downside is that the largest file it will transfer is 2GB although that will surely be enough for most people's FTP needs.

Captain FTP is an excellent FTP client that will satisfy just about every conceivable FTP need within a compact but powerful package.
