  • Supports FTP/SFTP connections,
  • Supports multiple cloud storage services,
  • Good integration into system and third-party apps like Putty,

The only downside for us is the annoying pop-up screen which forces user to donate (minimum 10 USD) to get a registration key which removes that window.
