    Hi Fetch Users.

    I apologize as I am new to this….

    I recently got a webhost and would like to post up a webpage. I noticed on the Fetch Screenshots there is no picture of the window that shows the "local computer" on the left side and "server/webhost" on the right side. I also noticed there was no screen shots of this type of page on another popular MAC FTP client. Does this screen exist? I simply want to drag my files from the computer side into the webhost public folder. Will fetch allow me to do this in this simple visual interface, or am I all wrong on what the FTP program does?

    Additional question is I KNOW about the above screen in the first place is because my friend used dreamweaver and that program itself had this screen and ability to upload to the Webhost's Server. If dreamweaver, a very popular web design program, already has this function, what does advantages does Fetch provide me over the built in?

    Fetch itself does not have a window that shows your local files; the Fetch window only shows the server files. However, you can easily drag and drop local files from a Finder window to the Fetch window representing the server.

    Fetch is exclusively focused on file transfer, so many people find it a more capable tool than the file transfer features added to some web design programs.

    Let us know if you have any more questions. Thanks,
