One of the first graphical tools for FTP I ever came across was an early version of CuteFTP. I abandoned all other graphical tools very quickly indeed. I've only just recently started looking elseware for a more skinnable tool such as 3D-FTP. The features which have been added version after version to CuteFTP have been clearly geared at 2 main markets. 1: Web developers 2: Illegal File distribution. CuteMX being the new tool for the latter, I'll not go into it much here but the people I know in the 'scene' would certainly agree that the features of MX are more than usefull for scheduled transfers while doing other things. As for web dev it's a God-send as I can now with zero effort manage my site and modify perms, etc on files/dirs/whatever. Easy, just a couple of clicks of the mouse and every is done, nice and intuitive. Just what I like. The only thing I can do is suggest you go to their website and get the demo, you'll never look back.
This is more or less the same to the hugely publicised napster that lets you connect to other users computers and share mp3s. This programme is superior to napster in every way but one, not very many people use it. I am sad to see in the news that a judge ruled that napster is being shut down. But, as the deffending attorney said 'you cannot put the genie back in the bottle'. And he/she is right. Napster will live on In programmes like this. There are about five others but the only one i can remmber is gnutella which my cousin says is superior. There are two main differences between napster and cutemx. 1. Cutemx lets you share all file types, not just mp3s. 2. The servers are linked. This means that resuming your download is entirely possible, with napster they were not which made resuming almost impossible. I urge everyone to download this.
