I have been using Forklift for years now. Before I switched to the Mac I used Total Commander and I had to find something similar for the Mac because the one pane outlay of the Finder was driving me nuts. Copying and moving files around or working with files in general is so much easier with two panes. For me Forklift replaces 4 apps: the Finder (a file manager), an FTP client, an app deleter and a multi rename tool. Instead of buying 4 apps separately I only bought this one and I'm really satisfied with it.

I am using Go FTP for Mac. It's small, fast, efficient, stable.
