DeFacto FTP client for Mac OS - I've been using Fetch for more than 20 years. It is THE ftp client for Mac OS. A MUST HAVE. It's very simple to use, yet capable of some of the more essoteric FTP settings. It has been a shareware staple and always one of the first apps I install on any new Mac all the way back to the B&W 512K Classic, just glad I don't have to worry about all the MacBinary and Modem garbage from the old days. Today Kermit and Xmodem options are replaced with SFTP and Kerberos options. AppleSingle, TYPE I, server-2-server, and loads of other features are supported. Oh yeah and Rover is in color now. Disregard the low ratings, clearly those were folks who were challenged by technology.
