I’ve been telling you guys some months ago that I use DiskOrder for Mac as an alternative to Total Commander for Windows. It works fine, it’s just like Total Commander but it’s quite annoying that every time I try to connect to a ftp session it first crashes 1 up to 3 times, then it works, strange.
Don’t know if I’m the only one getting this errors but hey, I’ve found ForkLift, and it’s basically the same, even better – it doesn’t crash!
You can do a lot of stuff with ForkLift, but I basically use it as a FTP manager to upload / download / edit my files.
Dual pane file manager and SFTP/FTP client for Mac OS X
ForkLift is designed to be the fastest, most powerful file manager for the Mac. Connect to FTP or SFTP servers, manage your Amazon S3 account or your mobile devices over Bluetooth. All these features are beautifully integrated into a sophisticated, yet easy to use Cocoa based interface.
