FileZilla was started as a computer science class project in the second week of January 2001 by Tim Kosse and two classmates. Before they started to write the code, they discussed on which licence they should release the code. They decided to make FileZilla an open-source project, because there were already many FTP clients available and they didn’t think that they would sell even one copy if they made FileZilla commercial.
Now FileZilla is known as one of the most reliable and updated FTP client, CNET.com quoting it 5 stars, with this elogious comment: “FileZilla is no monster, either, eating up a manageable 50 MB in memory. Clearly, this is one of the best FTP tools around”.
FileZilla is powerful Open Source FTP/SFTP client with many features. It includes a site manager to store all your connection details and logins as well as an Explorer style interface that shows the local and remote folders and can be customized independently. A nice program for beginners and advanced user alike.
FileZilla is distributed as an open source and free software. However, if you wish to express your appreciation for the time and effort put into developing and maintaining the software, as well as support future development, you are welcome to make a contribution to the official development team.
