Fetch FTP clients for Mac

Fetch is one of the oldest and most well-loved FTP clients, whose cute fetching-dog animation has been running--literally--on Macs since 1989. Fetch can handle all your basic FTP needs, including SFTP and FTP with TLS/SSL, along with support for AppleScript and one-click remote file editing (with any kind of file and any kind of application). In addition to a fairly minimal and intuitive visual interface, Fetch saves you time with extras like Quick Look previews (newly improved for Snow Leopard), easy drag-and-drop (including droplet shortcuts that save you from having to retype connection info), progress-tracking Dashboard widgets (shaped like, what else, doggie bones), autoresume of failed or stalled downloads, and a WebView feature that makes it easy to preview and share Web page updates.

Mac users have many more choices now for FTP clients than they did in 1989, including some free alternatives, and Fetch now falls into the middle ground in terms of price and features, with some notable shortcomings such as lack of support for Amazon S3. We would love to see more-substantial updates in the future, but overall Fetch remains a solid FTP option, especially for users who want comprehensive help and active user forums.
