Fetch 5.7 includes a number of features aimed at improving your ability to protect the privacy of your data. These features include:
- SFTP and FTP with TLS/SSL (FTPS)
- Proxy servers
- One-time passwords
- Challenge-response systems
- Uploading Files to your web server is as simple as clicking the Put button, or dragging the file’s icon from the Finder.
- WebView lets you set up a correspondence between files in Fetch and the address of the webpage they are part of, so that you can easily view changes to your website in a web browser by selecting files and clicking Fetch’s WebView button.
- The Mirror command lets you quickly upload all the changed files in a folder, efficiently keeping your website up to date.
- The Fetch File Management system works just like the Mac OS X Finder, so you can rename files by typing Return, move files by dragging them onto folders, and delete them by clicking the Delete button.
- Account Management with Fetch is easy. The Get Info command lets you total the size of all the files in your account, so that you can manage your usage of disk space, and also lets you keep directories private, or make CGI scripts executable, with a user interface that translates cryptic Unix permission codes to plain English and back.
Since the mid-90’s Fetch has been my FTP client of choice, and it’s still the easiest and most intuitive client in 2009. Now with Quick Look in v5.5 finding the right media file on a server is a snap! Fetch is everything that’s good about using a Mac.
