CyberDuck Review: Our Rating 9/10

CyberDuck is a great FTP client that users can easily use to upload, download and delete files from their FTP. When you start the program, it conveniently asks you to automatically sign into the last ftp server you logged in to. This is really great because it saves users the stress of going through the process of entering the username and password or selecting the ftp server from a list of saved ftp accounts before they can connect. Also it will ask if it could import all the login credential from all the other FTP clients you have installed on your system. This saves users the time to migrate login credentials from one client to the other.

It has been around since December 8th 2003, but its first release on windows was on march 8th 2011 and since then they have had stable update release to support the client.

With cyberduck, a user can directly open a file and edit them with any editor they have installed on their system and after edition and saving upon closing the document, the updated document will automatically be uploaded back in to the server in high speed.

It also comes with a great help page which will help users use it to its full extent.
