Portable FileZilla Description
Portable FileZilla is the standalone version of the Filezilla client, which does not require installation and can be easily copied on a portable device such as an USB flash drive. This way, the removable disk can be used on multiple computers, with the same connection settings saved in the FileZilla FTP client.
FileZilla evolved from what was originally a class project into a full-featured, open-source FTP application. The global project consists of the Filezilla client and Filezilla Server, both of which can be used individually for website management and transfer.
The Portable FileZilla client sports all the features of the installer version. It bundles support for various protocols, such as FTP, FTPS (FTP over SSL/TLS) and SFTP (SSH FTP) and is able to handle the IPv6 technology. It achieves outstanding transfer speeds and can be used for remote file editing.
Portable FileZilla provides a quick connect mode that prompts you to provide the host, username, password and port information, without the need for saving it separately. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t create multiple accounts and manage them on the go, because the “Site Manager” screen gives you the power to create new sites, folders and bookmarks.
With drag and drop support, speed limits, process queue and multiple transfer modes, Portable FileZilla also sports a huge settings menu with configuration options that concern every single feature of the app, such as transfers, proxy, interface, file editing or language. All these settings can be exported and imported back at a later time.
Overall, Portable FileZilla is one of the most appreciated FTP clients on the market and for good reason, too. It’s fast, intuitive and makes the perfect companion for website administrators.
