I keep a lot of backups safely tucked away on my online storage space. So, I spend a decent amount of time each weekend either in Terminal or Transmit. However, that doesn't mean I'm unwilling to check out alternate FTP clients. Yummy FTP looks pretty good.

It has support for both FTP and SFTP, automatic failure recovery, folder synchronization and more. What I really like are the "bookmarks." Basically, they're droplets that you can point to any directory in your online space. From there, you just drop a file you want transferred onto the bookmark and off it goes. Yummy FTP is good about asking if you want to make a new bookmark for new directories, as well as where you'd like them stored.* Other features include:
  • Easy scheduling setup
  • Can be scripted with Applescript
  • Remote editing with your favorite editor
Yummy FTP requires Mac OS 10.3 or later, and costs $25US for a single license. A fifteen day trial is available.

*Yes, I know that the current version of Transmit lets you create droplets as well, but I liked Yummy FTP's method.
