The Best FTP Clients for Mac Compared – Speed Test

A few months ago we decided to run a comprehensive speed test of the best file transfer clients for macOS. During this process, we made some observations which allowed us to increase the file transfer speed of ForkLift even more. In this blog post, we’ll tell you what changes we’ve made to make ForkLift faster, and we’ll reveal the results of our speed test.

ForkLift is a file manager and a file transfer tool for Mac supporting a wide variety of file transfer protocols. With ForkLift – among many other things – you can copy, move or delete files on your Mac locally and you can also connect to remote servers to upload, download or delete files. A lot of people have to connect to remote servers or cloud storages to transfer files on a daily basis, for example:

  • Web developers
  • Web designers
  • System administrators to move files to and from servers and even edit them remotely
  • Photographers to back up their photos to Amazon S3 or other providers
  • Bloggers to upload files to WordPress or other platforms
  • Everyday users who back up or store data on a NAS (Network Attached Storage), Google Drive or Dropbox

Nobody wants to spend too much time moving files from one place to another. This is especially true when the actual work can only begin after the files have been transferred. That’s why performance is one of the most important factors of file transfer apps.
