    Any good recomendations? Free or not free, doesn't matter.

    Im looking for a SmartFTP / WSFTP equivalent and something like mIRC from the Windows world. I have found equal or better replacements for everything except these two.

    Much appreciated, only have had a Mac for 3 months and I love my Powerbook to death. Native Unix for all my computer science projects, yay!

    I tried it and got confused. And I am by no means an idiot with computers. But the interface seemed very unfriendly and I gave up. Is it just me or is there a learning curve that's really worth it once you learn it?

    Try Fetch for FTP as well. If you are a student it's free.

    Still quite a solid client, I like it. Transmit might have more features though.
