Have you ever wished there was an FTP client that as easy to use as the Windows Explorer?
Have you ever wished that you could just drag a file to your desktop while using your FTP client?
Have you ever wished that you could connect to a site and instead of having to poke through directories could instead have the complete contents of the site at your fingertips and searchable? And do as much of it off-line as possible? Then Terrapin FTP is for you. Even if you're just looking for a good looking and easy to use client, you still want to take a look at Terrapin.

The program is a breeze to install. Just unzip into a temporary folder and run the install: no muss, no fuss and best of all, no rebooting. It has some sites preconfigured, and adding your own is a snap. Just click Server:New, type in the address and your login name (anonymous is the default) and then save as a file to your local drive (and no, it doesn't same the entire contents of the server to your drive; just a list).

What does it all boil down to? After having tried several flavors of WS-FTP, some other gui ftp clients, pulling stuff down through a browser and even a text-mode ftp client, I'm sending my registration in after using this one for a day. That's how much I like it. However there are a few things I still want to see, like automatic retry of busy sites and maybe a remote editor but still a very well done client.
