I've been a user of WS_FTP for about a year and was very happy with how easy it was for me to use once I figured out what to put in the little boxes for host name and IP address and all that other confusing stuff. But now, with WS_FTP Pro, I found that I didn't even have to think about what to put in the little boxes. It spells it out so easily that I was connected to my upload site in literally seconds! And, this version, 6.0, allows you to view a "tree" type table of contents that lists every ftp you need to connect to. All you have to do is click on the name and you're there.

The familiar explorer type interface is still there and as simple as ever so you won't need to learn a new system of doing things. There's a "Find" utility that allows you to search an ftp for files you set the criteria for, and a "Quick Connect" that lets you connect to new ftp sites fast. Several other new tools will be of interest to those more advanced users, but whether you're a novice or an expert, WS_FTP Pro is the only FTP program you'll ever need. The hardest part will be getting used to how easy it is!
