ForkLift is a fast file manager with an attractive interface, which makes handling FTP uploads and downloads very easy.

Version 2 has been updated so that it's faster, more reliable with several new features to make FTP transfers easier. Forklift maintains the same dual pane interface, which lets you view two different folders at once. The bottom pane of the interface has all the details on the file you select.

ForkLift lets you select your favorite devices and you can also use its search box to find specific files faster. There are also several handy editing tools, which allow you to batch rename files, split or create an archive. Connecting to a server is also pretty straightforward. ForkLift gives you a choice of FTP, SFTP, WebDAV and even includes Amazon S3 and Bluetooth.

There's much to discover in the new ForkLift but highlights include Disklets, Synclets, new view modes, transfer queue, improved archive handling, new search modes and filters (with RegExp), improved Sync, Stacks, integrated favorite manager, improved Multi-Rename, Workspaces and more. The most significant improvement however is pure speed - Forklift is quicker than ever.

If there's one thing missing from ForkLift however its the ability to schedule uploads - great if you handle a large amount of files.

ForkLift makes for an excellent file manager, thanks to a friendly dual pane interface, good editing tools and simple connection settings.
