FTP Navigator ( has
some very nice features FileZilla ought to imitate.
(Meanwhile, FTP Navigator has proven to be unstable in
my use, hence my interest in FileZilla.)

In FTP Navigator, when you open the program, you're
presented, in the right pane, with a list of all your
servers. You can click on a server to establish a
connection, or you can highlight a server and change
its properties.

Here's where it gets good: In the properties for a
server, you can specify both a starting remote path and
starting local path. That way, when you click on a
server to connect, the appropriate directory on your
local machine opens and your preferred default location
on the remote server opens. This is a very nice time
saver -- and I can't imagine it would be hard for
FileZilla's excellent developers to incorporate.

In FileZilla, by contrast, you have the option to have
the program remember your last location on the local
machine, but you can't associate different starting
locations on the local machine with different remote

I also prefer having the servers right there in the
right pane when I open the program, rather than
operating the quick connect pull-down provided in

Another nice feature in FTP Navigator. There's a text
file containing all your server connections and the
properties for those connections. That way, to
transfer your connections and properties from one
computer to another, you just take that text file and
copy it to your other computer, and put it in the
appropriate place in the program folder. This is great
for synching your desktop with your laptop --
especially if you have lots of server connections to
keep track of.

Feature request, not a support request, moving..

FileZilla 3 has a site manager where you can define default local and remote directory per site. These settings are stored inside a XML configuration file, so you can synchronise it easily with third party tools (XML export is present in FileZilla as well).

Closing this RFE.
