Publisher description for Captain FTP

Captain FTP program icon

Captain FTP sets the mark with new technology advances, and is the very first FTP Client to allow local network FTP users to share files directly between each other. The challenge behind this concept is to provide users with a platform to share their work, and collaborate on projects before their work is published on a remote FTP Server, particularly benefiting business users or groups of users, who can share their work securely, privately, and quickly. As FTP is considered to be the most effective way to distribute files over the Internet, why not take it further and allow users to connect each other? This requires a new approach, with the address book divided into separate parts, which resulted in the creation of the Public Address Book consisting of local Network users, Private FTP entries, and Public FTP entries that can be shared to share files, but only with users authorized and approved by the host. This is not a Peer to Peer methodology, as only authorized local network users, and specified (authorized) WAN users may be available for you to connect to, or for them to connect to you. This innovative solution also requires a new interface to facilitate FTP session management, which has led to the development of the tabbed interface supporting multiple FTP connections, allowing users to open multiple Tabs (each tab a separate FTP session) in a single browser window, or both browser windows (left and right). It is even possible to transfer between tabs in the same window by drag'n'drop. Captain FTP also has many enhancements that combine to make the already user-friendly Captain FTP even more inviting for Mac users. File management has been made easier with the addition of built-in file viewers for movies, sounds, pictures, PDF, a new browser column to show file attributes, and file/folder synchronization has been enhanced with a visual browser. Captain offers many features which enhance the user experience including such background transfers which free up the browser window for other activities. Growl notifications which alert users of completed tasks with visual and audible alerts. Collapsible preview and task drawers add to the users experience of the application by simplifying many of the repetitive and cumbersome tasks.
