I have been gladly impressed by FileZilla. I'd never found an ftp program so good... and it is even
better considering its wonderful price ;).
There is a feature that I have been looking for from long time ago in an ftp program that I haven't
found yet. I think it could be a great complement for FileZilla. This is a "backup mode". I think it
could be very helpful for webmasters with slow dial-up connections like me that want to make
backups of our websites, but without wasting the time of downloading all the files that haven't
changed since the last backup.
It could be implemented as a new feature or simply as a new option in the dialog box that appears
when a downloaded file is already in the local computer. In addition to the current "Overwrite",
"Rename" and "Skip" options, this new button could be called something like "copy only if newer".
