The new Transmit is faster and has a Finder-like interface. One of the best FTP clients for Mac just got better.
If you work in this industry as a freelance video editor, you often have to move massive video files up and down a server via FTP.
While file transfer protocol may be a bit of an archaic web distribution method, it is the most ubiquitous and affordable way to send video files.
Transmit, one of the best Mac FTP clients out there, has considerably upped the game in their latest version.
Now in its 4th major iteration, it boasts some of the fastest transfer speeds around.
Version 4 also introduces the Transmit Disk feature, giving you the ability to now mount any of your favorite volumes in the Finder itself.
These are real volumes that you can treat just like you would folders in Finder.
Other features that look interesting:
- Multi-Connection Transfers (for faster batch transfers)
- Tear-Off Tabs
- Twin Progress Bar (see current and overall progress)
- Cover Flow
- Image Thumbnail View
- Friendly File Sync (a nice, plain-English bubble talks you through the sync)
- Amazon S3 CloudFront Support
- Send SSH Command (zip, unzip, etc.)
Finally, FTP is For The People, thanks to Transmit ‘for the win!’
