Yummy FTP 1.7: The Fastest FTP Client Ever?

Version 1.7 of Yummy FTP, which is – obviously – an FTP client, has just been released by Yummy Software. This application is well-known for its file uploading speed compared to other existing applications.

This new version brings to the application Leopard support and built-in Quick Look functionality, among other enhancements.

Yummy FTP claims to be the fastest FTP client for Mac on the market. In fact, the developer indicates that Yummy FTP is not only faster than other FTP applications like Fetch, Transmit or Interarchy, but it also uses far less CPU cycles. Indeed, they’re 4 times faster than Fetch for transferring 385 files, because it uses only 10% of the CPU, whereas Fetch uses 60% and Transmit clocks in at 100%.

Yummy FTP also has plenty other great features such as :

  • Failure auto-recovery
  • Finder FTP uploads
  • Auto-upload folders
  • Directory synchronization
  • Scheduling

My favorites are the Dock Menu (to execute actions quickly without opening the window) and spell-checking in the editor which is very useful. This new release of Yummy FTP brings full-compatibility with Leopard along with ergonomic enhancements to match Leopard’s style. It also adds a very nice feature: QuickLook. Just like Leopard’s Finder, you can now have a preview of remote files in a blink, just by tapping the spacebar. Very useful if you don’t remember what contains a file you uploaded.

Yummy FTP costs $25, although a 30-day trial version is available.

    I’ve tested a lot of FTP clients and Yummy is by far the best one.

    Ditto here. Best FTP client I’ve used so far and I have test a lot of them. Yummy is flawless for my need. And the dev is very active and dedicated to his app.

    I concur…Yummy FTP rocks. It’s the only FTP client that works consistently well w/ my modded Xbox. It’s fast, lightweight and has most of the bells and whistles of the other FTP clients. You can create droplets (called Aliases in Yummy) and the quicklook support is sweet. I highly recommend this.

    The 1.7 is even much better, than 1.6 was.

    Yummy FTP is the fastest (and in my opinion, overall best) FTP client out there. I really don’t understand why more people use Transmit over Yummy FTP.

    I’ve tested almost all the FTP clients for Mac, and Yummy is the best by a far margin. Why do people bother with the slower Transmit? If you want the fastest, friendliest, and overall best FTP client, buy Yummy FTP by Yummy Software.

    I love Yummy FTP because it’s so fast and easy to use, very mac-like. Unfortunately, I had to purchase another FTP client as well so I could use it with amazon s3 (transmit). It’s sad Yummy doesn’t support that :(

    Yummy is a well-engineered FTP client. Jason, its, developer is wonderfully responsive. The automated scheduling feature, coupled with Growl notification, puts it streets ahead of the competition. It’s one conspicuous weakness is lack of WebDAV support, I greatly hope we can look forward to that in a future version, Jason ought to place this at the top of his priority list.

    Indeed amazing. All this time, had stalled on setting up my sites on a new ftp client and today, when the one I was using still hadn’t uploaded 42MB in 2100 files in 90 sub-folders after 6 hours of uploading – I caved in and gave Yummy a shot and can’t believe my eyes. Fast would be an understatement. Best software purchase that I’ve made in a long time.

    Just purchased V1.8.2 after comparing speeds against Cyberduck, Transmit, Interarchy and Flow. It would appear that Yummy is still the undisputed king of Mac FTP clients because it kicked collective butt on both up and download times. Superb piece of software.

    I think yummy is good but not the best.
    I use FileZilla, and it’s even much better than Yummy, becouse its free.
    They also have Mac version.

    An interesting dialogue is worth a comment. I feel that it’s best to write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not brave enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers

    If you are responsible for managing a website, particularly a large one, where pages change frequently, a FTP client with a scheduling feature, such as Yummy has. For some reason, developers of some rival products (such as Transmit) just can’t get this through their thick skulls. And if you are doing automated uploads in the background or when your computer is unattended, speed is actually not a very important consideration (although Yummy is plenty fast).

    Sorry, I mean to say “, a FTP client with a scheduling feature, such as Yummy has, is a vitally important tool.”
