Cyber-Duck is one of the most popular FTP and SFTP clients for Mac users. The free software is open source and offers a number of features.
It integrates with Apple’s built-in zero-configuration networking system – Bonjour, as well as its Keychain password management system. This allows it to automatically discover SFTP, WebDAV, and FTP services in the local network.
Easy to use
Cyber-Duck For Mac is one of the easiest FTP clients to use. It features a minimalist UI that blends well with the Mac aesthetic.
It supports SFTP and FTP as well as a host of other protocols. It also offers a number of advanced features to help you work with your files.
For example, it can recursively transfer directories, resume interrupted uploads and downloads (as long as the server supports it), filter files using a regular expression, and limit the number of concurrent transfers.
The program also includes a file cache that can make browsing your server much easier. In addition, it can search for files and folders on a server without having to connect to it.
It supports third-party cloud storage services like Amazon S3, OpenStack Swift, Backblaze B2, Microsoft Azure & OneDrive, Google Drive, and Dropbox. This makes it great for distributing files across a variety of computers.

Cyberduck also offers file editing and a quick look feature, which lets you preview files before uploading them to the server. This is a great option for people who want to make changes quickly on their site.
Cyberduck is compatible with external editors such as BBEdit and Eclipse. The software can automatically detect the external editor you are using and integrate it with Cyberduck. It also supports public key authentication and one-time passwords.

Supports cloud storage
Cyber-Duck For Mac is an open-source FTP and SFTP client that supports well-known cloud storage services like Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, and many more. It was originally developed by David V. Kocher and Yves Langisch and is easy to use with an intuitive user interface.
The software connects to both local servers and cloud IaaS services such as Amazon S3, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure and more using FTP and SFTP protocols, WebDAV, and APIs. It also supports CloudFront for distributing files globally with a single click.
Unlike Mountain Duck, Cyberduck is a file transfer tool that lets you upload and download files from both your local server and the cloud. It can even edit files on the cloud.
