I use WinSCP. It doesn't install adware, and it has a simpler interface than FileZilla. It is easy to use and supports FTP, SFTP, and SCP. It can also save as many profiles as you want.

Use the zip option instead of the .exe installer, and simply unzip filezilla to where you want it - other than to bundle the crapware and potentially check for updates, why would filezilla need an installer? Alternatively, it seems like there is a nowrap link for sourceforge downloads, so instead of the default http://sourceforge.net/projects/filezilla/...

Keep away from it, at least as long as they reference the SourceForge download site! The FileZilla download from SourceFourge (their official download site) definitely installs unwanted software without the user's explicit consent and knowledge (thus malware). It was NOT the software advertized in the SourceForge downloader popup, which I rejected. I tried ...

A while ago, I've used ProFTPD, which is also recommended at AskUbuntu for offering a nice and user-friendly GUI: GAdmin-ProFTPD (source: Wikipedia; click image for larger variant) Work on Ubuntu 13.10: yes Free: Yes GUI: Yes (see screenshot) Easy to use: yes I have to admit I never used the GUI myself. But ProFTPD itself always was running stable, and ...

I'd recommend Sublime Text. Sublime has everything you would expect in a minor IDE or an amazing text editor and yet is very very light. Pretty much any area that you want to have more features there is a simply massive plugin library. Sublime Text is not free but it on the cheap end of software, it also has a free unlimited trial so you can test it and ...

You can use SFTP or you can use rsync over SSH. You need to configure your router for port forwarding port 22. It meets your requirements, because: It's encrypted using a password or an SSH key There's no server in the middle It's quick to set up: Install openssh-server (and additionally rsync, if you want to use that) on your computer (optionally) Setup ...

If you are on Windows, WinSCP has incremental site search. It can even import sites/sessions from FileZilla. It supports folders, similarly to FileZilla, too. And it supports a larger set of protocols and features than FileZilla does. (I'm the author of WinSCP)

For some period of time I used Komodo Edit. Komodo Edit is a stripped down version of Komodo IDE. Nevertheless Komodo Edit is a full featured text editor with such features as syntax highlighting, automatic insertion of matching parentheses, FTP support, and many other features a modern editor should have. (Later I switched to Kate because Komodo's bad ...

I used to be an Eclipse fan, but a few years ago I moved to NetBeans and have never looked back. I am currently using it for PHP (and MySql/SQlite), C, C++ and JavaScript.

You can try WebStorm. Based on your requirements it has: Instant autocomplete/autosuggest for HTML, CSS, and JS. I am not sure about PHP, but you try PHPStorm for that. Highlight blocks (either like this or this), where it is easy and obvious to see where a block starts and ends. Ability to push and commit to Git repo directly. I am not sure abot FTP ...

Quick access between different folders (eg root to root, wp-content/themes to wp-content/themes etc. I spend forver traversing directories) WinSCP has synchronized browsing and bookmarks. Cloud storage of all my site logins (not file storage, just "Site Manager" stuff) I think you mean sharing FTP client config/credentials across machines? You can set ...

Maybe a little late, but hope it's still useful. I use HashCheck for this: free, open-source, licensed under a BSD-style license, and written in C. It works on Windows 7, both x86 and x64. It's implemented as an Explorer shell extension. It adds a Checksum tab to the properties dialog of files and folders which shows the checksums of each selected file, ...

I suggest you cfv. It runs on Windows too ("works on linux, freebsd, openbsd, netbsd, solaris, macosx, and windows."). easy to use It's a command line tool, cfv -C -t sha1 -rr will generate you a <current directory name>.sha1 checksum file (recursive) that you can check with cfv -T -f my.sha1. with GUI It's a command line tool ...

I think there is a problem with the question. The question refers to "FTP Server" and states "support SFTP", but FTP and SFTP are two different protocols. Also, from one of the comments we can see that you clearly talk about being able to connect to "server terminal and use the shell like bash", so it's probably safe to infer that the server you're talking ...

I already replied to your similar question here: https://softwarerecs.stackexchange.com/a/27511/2336 Specifically in this question (FTP client), also network data transfer speed comes in as significant factor – see comments of Thomas Weller under your question. But you can still attempt to put files on remote side into single archive (TAR, ZIP) and after ...

Unless you have other special requirements (such as SFTP / FTPS support) about any web browser will do. Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer all have a built-in FTP client that allows read-only access to FTP sites, although there are plans to remove it from Chrome. (A similar request to remove FTP support from Firefox was declined.). Simply try visiting ...

Windows File Explorer is capable of acting as a FTP client. This is likely the easiest way to allow users who don't know how to use FTP to use FTP, as it acts as if it were just a regular directory. Open File Explorer Enter the FTP address into the address bar (e.g. ftp://ftp.gnu.org) Enter username and password at the prompt (if required) Use ...

I use Vim (more precisely the gui thing "GVim") for this. It is available on ipad (I use it on linux, so I would be grateful if you try in on IPad and post your experiences). It can't "save" your favorites (at least I don't know a simple way) but it has command history so you can go back. If you are unfamiliar with an editor of the vi/vim family prepare ...

As you only wish to replace your network mount, and both machines are part of the same subnet, you might wish to take a look at Samba. This server software is part of most Linux distributions repositories, and thus easy to install (if it's not already pre-installed). Configuration shouldn't be that difficult either: usually, you just have to uncomment (and ...

As I told you that workflow is fragile, personally I've different approach which depends on types of work, also in comments, I recommended you Git, but not everyone can use that for Private Repository without having a premium account.

If you are looking for a client that will allow you to enter FTP: //hostname/folder/file.ext into it and it immediately opens the file in the application associated with the file extension, then you will need to find an FTP client which can register itself as a "URL Handler". This will allow the FTP client to launch, log in to the remote FTP server, ...
