ForkLift – FTP / File Manager for Mac

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.
