ForkLift is a very advanced file and folder management tool. It also comes with other functionality that just makes it better. For example, there is a built-in FTP and Amazon S3 client which allows you to connect to an FTP site or Amazon S3 account and move files around. But what I really like about this app is how good it can manage files.

When you first open this app, there is one thing that you will notice: there are two panes instead of the single one Finder gives you. This makes moving files around your Mac a much easier task. This view shows some information about the files and folders that it shows, and it gives you access to Quick Look. There is a feature called Zoom which basically temporarily closes one of the panes and shows the other one in the totality of the screen. When you click the "Zoom" button again, the two-pane interface will be restored.

ForkLift manages FTP connections just fine and it supports the FXP protocol to allow you to copy files from an FTP server to another one, without having to download those files to your computer first.

There are several interesting features available, so make sure you check them all during your trial period.
