"I'm really paranoid about how much these tech companies know about you. When you use some other browsers or services, you're unwittingly letting them know about everything you search, visit, look for, and do online, and even your location I'm SO OVER THAT!! So it's good that a browser like BRAVE exists"

    "The Topic, I would like to see Top instead of Best, best implies better than all other, while Top infers greater than best. The main point leaves a lot of info out, what if a novice was to come up this intro, they may not know what you are referring to. A simplified language might be helpful in selling a Windows based FTP server. You have a link to a youtube video, why could you embed the youtube video in the opening of the page, then there will be no room for mistakes in downloading and using the application. The Viewing the Solution page is a very busy page, it could be more simplified."

    "Finding a reliable FTP server has been tough, but I came across this website in ZFTP Server that has some good resources. I was able to look and find some good Windows servers by signing up for a trial. If you want a full account it doesn't run your wallet empty. Good abundance of servers that I was able to host using their interfaces. Very easy to work with and I would be sure to recommend this to anyone in need of a FTP server. "

    "This is an okay FTP server for windows but if you want a list of options of different ones it isn't going to do that. If you are looking for a list of different FTP servers so you can take a look at more than one then look elsewhere. If you just want one that works then this will be a great option for you."

    "Started using Titan because it's recommended by Cisco to back up their call manager suite. It's worked flawlessly for 4 years. Recently started using some of the automation that's built in, so that we can send notifications when backups complete, rotate old backups to offsite storage, etc. Its worked so well that we will be implementing a second server for automating some other processes."

    "The solution link goes directly to the resource site. The program that is available for download seems like a good program, but the site is highly cluttered and offers little information about the application or general use of the program. Information about the specifics of the program are on the site, but are difficult to interpret by those who are not familiar with this type of program. "

    "I think that Cyberduck is a good invention and tool for those to wish to have constant access to various servers. The browser allows people to switch to different servers at will, and also has other features like using Dropbox and sharing files with others. Overall, it works well and is a great tool."

    "It's worth considering some of the web-based alternatives, like Monsta FTP (disclaimer: I'm involved with this) They save you having to install software on every device; instead you do it all through your browser, with the same features as any desktop client."
